Caris at Schweinfurth

This Sunday's program at the Schweinfurth Art Center was a trunk show by Caris Burton.

Caris is a member of Genesee Valley Quilt Club and is well known for her applique and hand-quilting skills, as well as her beautiful wearables.

The first quilt she showed us was worked on by her grandmother in the 1940's, by her mother in the 1990's, and that she completed.

This is her Tree of Life quilt, which has won awards, including a ribbon at the Lowell Quilt Show in Lowell, MA.

The quilt being held up was made in Pat Pauly's Slash and Burn class. 

The quilt hanging on the right is one Caris designed for her son's office.

Caris showed us several of her wonderful garments, and I especially liked this silk vest.
