On The Wings of A Dream

Our congratulations to Caryl Bryer Fallert of Paducah, Kentucky for winning Best Of Show IQF Houston 2009 for her quilt "On The Wings of A Dream".

Caryl won the $10,000 prize sponsored by Handi-Quilter for this self portrait.
The outline of the white bird was stitched with Brytes by Superior, heavy #30 white topstitch thread.
The remaining details of the bird was stitched with #40 white topstitch thread.
On The Wings of A Dream took 15 months to complete, and represented for Caryl, starting a new life in a new place.
With the loss of her husband in 2006, Caryl drew a series of designs to fulfill her life long dream of learning to dance.
