Eternal Beauty - Best in Show
Sherry Reynolds, Laramie, WY
Eternal Beauty is dedicated to my mom, who's beauty in life shines eternally in my heart. During her 40 year struggle with Multiple Sclerosis, she taught me always to have Hope and to Laugh in the face of adversity. To exhibit Courage, Kindness and Compassion and to possess Tenacity and Pride. Most of all, to understand that Life is what we make regardless of the circumstances. I chose colors she loved and paired them with a beautiful Robert Kaufman print. 4yrs and 15,000 pieces later, I had created a vision of love & beauty in the night sky. The mosaic tile looking border that "frames" the quilt is my own unique creation, and yes, it is pieced. Original design, drafted on graph paper.
