As a side note: I went to another national show and was so disappointed in the quilts. I don't think there was a single quilt I wanted to get closer to.
Anyhow, when browsing online for the pattern of a quilt I greatly admired at the Syracuse show this is what I found:
Let Them Eat Cake by Nancy Hieronymus Barrett of With Needle and Thread.
A cute enough pattern.
However, it looks absolutely nothing like this:
This quilt was called One Cake, Two Cakes, Red Cake Blue Cake.
The detail just blew me away.
I had never seen this binding before but it is called a Loop Binding.
The quilt was made by Linda Neal and quilted by Jackie Brown.
For another detailed post about this quilt check out this one. It even includes a picture of the maker with her quilt.
I hope some of you quilt fans get to see this beauty in person as it's traveling with the AQS show.
I think I'm a pretty good quilter but I will never ever be able to create this!
