After posting the video of Eternal Beauty, Best of Show at the Pacific International Quilt Festival, Captain John wanted to see more of this stunning quilt and thought you might like to as well. Take a peek at all the little details Sherry Reynolds put into her award-winning design. We've added them below the quilt label.
--------------------------------------------
 
Sherry Reynolds won the Pacific International Quilt Festival Best of Show in 2011 with America, Let It Shine (Which also won Best of Show in Houston 2012.) This year she has won it again with Eternal Beauty, a loving tribute to her mother, which took Sherry 4 years and 15,000 pieces to make.
 
The work Sherry put into this piece is unbelievable. The border is made up of tiny strips, some as small as 3/16" of inch. Many of the pieces were mirrored and matched with extreme precision. The circular pieces are strips of silk that were hand appliquéd to the background.
 
Sherry still uses her domestic machine (a BERNINA) to quilt and for many of you that follow Sherry on Facebook, you'll know that it all didn't come together perfectly the first time, which gives hope to us all.
 
Congratulations Sherry!

Beautiful. I can't imagine designing anything this complex and then to quilt it on your home machine. WOW

The picture doesn’t do this quilt justice. Saw the picture and wondered why it won. I went to the quilt show and was my mind changed. Absolutely stunning is all I can say. I just wish everyone could see it in person. SUPER JOB!
