Caryl is a professional quilt artist. She makes original fine art for the walls of homes and businesses from fabric that is stitched together and quilted. Most of her work is made from 100% cotton fabric, which is dyed and painted, then pieced, appliquéd, embroidered, and quilted on her sewing machine whom she lovingly calls George.
