Sharon Casey merged her two greatest passions, music and art, into her quilt, Boogie Brass Band, which won the Director's Choice Award at Road to California 2020. Inspired by the big band sound she heard as a child and a love for marching bands, Sharon's quilt lets the music ring and the fabrics sing.

Hi Joy! This is the artist, Sharon Casey. Thank you!
There must be a few of us who share similar memories. I kept singing "76 Trombones in the Big Parade" while I was making this quilt! I couldn't get it out of my head! LOL!!

My dad also played a lot of big band music when I was a kid and I am partial to it as a result. What memories!
I love your quilt.
