Among the honors she has achieved are inclusion in 100 Best Quilts of the 20th Century, a Silver Star Award for lifetime achievement and selection as one of the thirty most influential quiltmakers in the world.
Caryl describes her program as a fast-moving, information-packed, digital lecture which takes an in-depth look at the development of her quilt designs and how she uses and has used color for special effects.She will discuss her personal methods for finding inspiration and creating designs with lots of close-up details of her piecing and quilting techniques.
She will show pictures of many of her quilts during her presentation as well as having several of her quilts on display during the meeting.
