Texas Quilt Museum

While in Houston recently Sarah and I made a trip to LaGrange, TX to see the Texas Quilt Museum.  I had seen photos of the facility in magazines and was thrilled to be able to visit it in person.  To my delight, the artist that was being featured at the time was Caryl Bryer Fallert-Gentry.  I’d been admiring her creations for a long time.

I was not disappointed — it was fantastic.  It isn’t a huge museum, but they have plenty of space to display quilts from the featured artist, as well as additional quilts in an adjoining room.  We were not allowed to take photos, but they did offer to take photos of us next to our favorite quilts (I begged for an extra pic and they willingly obliged).  Here they are:

Although not a large quilt, I had admired it when I first saw it in a magazine.  It’s called “Cattywampus Log Cabin #4,” and you can see her design concept for it here.

This next  one is called  Jacuzzi Jazz #1.  Take  a look at  her design concept here.  

Last,  I really  liked  this next  one called  Spirogyra #1.  The colors are  so pretty together.  Click  here for Caryl’s Design Strategy.

I’m sure you would enjoy looking  at her website, where all of her quilts can be seen — click here.
