Those who know me know I love color. However, these are not those colors. And I am not crazy about pattern in large amounts. That being said, part of what makes what I do fun is all the different fabrics I get to work with. I don't have to love what I'm sewing, though it is more fun. For this client/job, I was working with a designer. He worked with the client on the choice of fabric. I just make what I'm given. I am rarely involved on the fabric side, just the fabrication of whatever it is they want.
The designer had the headboard reupholstered. I made the pillow shams, the long bolster, the coverlet and the bed skirt. I am unable to quilt fabric, so Michael had the fabric quilted locally and then I made the coverlet. Next time, I will seam the pieces first, have it quilted and then cut it to size and finish the edges. Sewing it was quite a challenge.
I think this is the longest bolster I've ever made. Again, a challenge because sewing a 48" zipper into a 'tube' of fabric that is only about 7" in diameter is kinda hard.
The client was very happy with the completed project and that's what's important.
