Eye Candy

Here it is, the finished quilt for my friend Shell.


Shell's Wedding Quilt



Here's the Pillow Shams & Cases


Pillow Shams & Pillow Cases for Shell



Shell's pillow shams



I know you've seen the cases and shams before but I thought it would be nice to re-cap with the whole set. I'm so excited, I can't wait to give them to her tomorrow!

After being at the shop tonight, I went out for ice cream with my cousin April. Wow, we walked into a Culver's that was full of high school kids dressed up in black and white. Band nerds, they had to have been band nerds straight from a band concert. I can call them Band Nerds, I was one myself. I played the flute.

What instrument did you play?

Jen ~ This turned out WONDERFUL!! I am still "eying" that fabric group. I want it all ~ but I don't have any particular use for it so I was a good girl and passed on it. Love seeing it though.

Great quilt and cases and shams, oh my! :) I played the piano. Not too mobile, thank God! I wasn't a band nerd! :)

first off, the quilt is awesome. I just love that fabric collection. I believe my mom has it to make something... who even knows at this point!

second, I wasn't a band geek per se. I dated a band geek, but I played the cello for a few years and was chorus geek. I was in the select chamber choir, so we had our own little clique anyway. so I totally get it.

lastly, good luck with your move and whatnot... I'll be dealing with it eventually myself... das and I have been house hunting for a year now (UGH!).

Your quilt is absolutely stunning! I'm sure she will love it. The whole set is such an amazing gift. I've kept my mom too busy sewing for the wedding, so I know we won't be getting a quilt from her. I was so a band geek! I played clarinet from 5th grade until I graduated from college. I was in the Pride of the Dakotas Marching Band in college and we played at a Green Bay Packers game and in DC for the Bicentennial parade. My two best friends from college were in the band with me.

Love the quilt...

I played clarinet until my inability to read music caught up with me - still inept in that department. I was a drama club geek instead.

The quilt is amazing. She'll love it.

I was (and still am) a total band nerd. I was a percussionist: anything you can hit I played. My favorite was the marimba. I played through college and now play bells (which I get to hit with mallets!!!) for my church.

Definitely eye candy!

We called them Band Geeks... I played clarinet.

I've seen this whole set in person and it's fantastic. The colors are so pretty and who wouldn't want to have it in their bedroom.
