You MUST see this quilt!

I am a follower of Diane Gaudynski's blog and read her latest post following the American Quilter's Association show in Paducah. She has a link to the winners, BUT she had a picture of an absolutely incredible quilt with a link to Sandra Leichner's blog.

Diane said that this quilt was "her treat of the show" and admitted that her mouth must have been hanging open when she saw it. Apparently word of mouth between quilters had her anticipating before she got to the show. Do you need to ask if I hit the link for more info after seeing the picture?

I don't want to break any rules by copying, but I must tell you that I pre-ordered the book due out in October. That's the picture above. Can hardly wait for it to arrive!

First, she quilts herself (no long arm machine), the applique work is incredible, and the hand embroidery is to die for. Links below are for 2 posts and you will be amazed!




The detail of her work is incredible. Be prepared to spend some time and enjoy!

I'll bet that there are a lot of the professional experienced quilters who are as astonished as I am that she didn't win a prize.



  1. Thanks for the links Mary. You were right - her work is incredible. No wonder you are keen to receive her book. Ann :-)

  2. Thank Mary for your comment today, I thanks God for every day and give the the strengh to do what I need to do. Thank you for the link also, we quilter need to stick together. HAVE A GREAT DAY!

  3. Mary that quilt is amazing. The detail is fantastic. Thanks for sharing the link. You going to make it when you get the book?

  4. I took a look at the detail pages...she didn't win ANYTHING for that? That's really odd.
    Happy Quilting!!

  5. Truly gorgeous! I wonder how long it took her to finish it? ---"Love"

  6. First, Thank you for the nice comments on the baby quilt. Second, it amazes me how talented some people can be with needle and thread. I also wonder how long it took. Wonderful. Connie204
