I starting calculating in my head to determine the cost of each piece. (Of course this wouldn't be one of those "bed-in-the-bags" where all the pieces come in a set. Nope, all the pieces were sold individually). Anyway, the final price of the quilt was what my siblings and their spouses usually spend on me for my birthday combined. My birthday is in April, so what do you think I did????? I grabbed up all the pieces and hustled to find Mama, Kristin, Amy, and Tennille. They loved it and within minutes we were checking out!!! The girls bought the quilt for me and my mom bought all the shams and dust ruffle!!!!! And they didn't make me wait until my birthday!!!! SCORE!!!
So, what do you think???? Here's a BEFORE picture with my old comforter...
And here's the AFTER with my new bedding...
I think the colors just make the room POP now! It seems so much more rich. I moved the rug from my bathroom and placed it at the foot of the bed. I think it adds so much warmth to the room.
For those of you who don't know, the quilt is called a Crazy Quilt. Years ago, ladies would hand piece quilts with all different shapes and sizes of fabric. Then, they would hand stitch decorative stitches to hold the pieces together. Mine happens to be a machine-made version, but it mimicks the hand-stitched design.
I just LOVE it! It's so cool how God works things out like this. It is no coincidence that the ones in Tyler sold out, but that I found the exact one I was looking for at a grand savings of 50% off!!!!! AND, I received it all as a GIFT!!! WOO-HOO!!! Thank you Kristin, Amy, Tennille, and Mama!!!!
