For Fabric Nerds Only?

I had another friend request an ipad cover.  This is just the sort of thing I get all excited to make.  It struck me as the perfect project to feature my new Ruby Star Shining typewriter print. I had a look around in my stash and kept finding great coordinates. 
There are two Hope Valley prints that have just the right pink and purple in them, and the So Sophie dot has the perfect purple and mustard.  I used Faith's tutorial this time because the zippered pocket allowed me to include more coordinating fabrics, of course.
They are so fun together, but maybe I got a little caught up in it all.  I think I may have created a cover only a fabric nerd would love.  It is a little busy. :)  Oh well, it was a rush combining all those great prints.  I may need to go back to the drawing board to create something more suitable for the general public.

oh, this looks fantastic. Love all the colors together!!! Does that make me a fabric nerd? I guess so, and I'm perfectly fine with that.

Oh my! It's perfect! I would be tempted to get an iPad just to use that cover :) But I think I could qualify as a fabric nerd, so that opinion might not help.

I LOVE this. The general public would be improved with your influence. Educate them!

I'm a fabric nerd and a regular ol' nerd, and I think this is fantastic! Your friend will love it no doubt.

Hope Valley is so awesome, I may even like it more than FMF.

I've been called a lot of things (mostly by my teenage sons!), but I've never been called a fabric nerd! :) I will gladly accept that title. I love this!

This fabric nerd adores it! But, really, I don't think it's too busy. Prints are awesome.

Are you on crack? Anybody would love this. ANYBODY! There's a reason we are all fabric nerds, and that's cause there's so much yummy fabric out there. You did a lovely job putting these prints together and it looks fantastic! Although, I suppose if your friend isn't enough of a nerd to appreciate the awesomeness, you could always send this project my way. My iPad has been shamefully naked for months and could use a new outfit!
