Caryl Bryer Fallert-Gentry uses the most lush rich colors in her quilts. Hand dying fabrics and careful planning and cutting result in some of the most incredible quilts that I have ever seen. You can look on her web site’s gallery at The Bryer Patch to get an idea. However, the gallery photos can not do justice to the texture and richness her quilts have in person.
If you are a math or physics wiz, you might notice her use of the Fibonacci sequence in many of her quilts. The human brain is faster and better than any known modern computer at recognizing subtle patterns and shapes. I believe this gives her quilts that use it a touch of organization that our human minds identify strongly with and thus we feel comfortable with her quilts. Even when the quilts are of wild shapes and seemingly random curves and spirals, the Fibonacci sequence is something our brains can cling to even though we do not know our brains are doing it. The sequence pulls our eyes around her quilt in a way that mesmerizes and keeps us looking at the quilt much longer than we would without.
