Each year at the International Quilt Market and Festival, Handi Quilter is pleased to be able to present the “Handi Quilter Best of Show” award to a talented quilter who created a truly magnificent quilt. This year that deserving quilter was Sherry Reynolds of Laramie, Wyoming.
In the photo below you can see Handi Quilter Director of Marketing Brenda Groelz presents Sherry with her $10,000 prize.
Sherry’s quilt, “America, Let It Shine,” is a red, white and blue masterpiece that combines traditional design, perfect piecing, intricate quilting, and as the Houston Chronicle wrote “sparkly symbolism”.
These quilt photos were taken at the 2012 HMQS show in Salt Lake City, where Sherry also won best of show. Here are some close-ups of her magnificent workmanship.
Have you won any awards for your quilts? Do you have a quilt of this magnitude in your future?
