Quick-Change-blog-hop
About a year ago Martingale invited me to be a part of a new compilation book called Quick Change, Refresh a Room fast with Quilted Bed Runners. Thirteen gorgeous bed runners designed by some very talented quilt designers are featured in this book and I felt very honored to be one to contribute to the book.

We celebrate the new book with a blog hop and a giveaway and the designers will be sharing details about their runners, Q&A style.


What inspired your bed runner?
It must have been Pinterest (what else) where I once spotted a black and white wall art with lines of irregular triangles. I see instantly fabric or quilt patterns in inspirations and in that one I could imagine how easy to piece it must be – wonky cuts and no matching points. Sounds like fun.

And my line FIGURES gave me the perfect shades of navy, aqua and white linen. BTW: this quilt has been sewn and quilted by a friend of mine, Martina Ludwig. It’s great to have helping friends with such skills!


Do you have other favorite projects from Quick Change?
I love Winding Roads by Megan Jimenez of Quilt story for its design and the beautiful fabrics “Color Me Happy” from Vanessa Christenson. it’s the one on the book title above.


What does the master bedroom of your dreams look like?
Ohhh, which of all the favorite pictures should I pick for you????  In general it is a minimalist (how could it be otherwise), modern, clean and Scandinavian designed bedroom with lots of light and air to breath and feel free.

Actually,I don't want to sew anything for our bedroom because I am using a quilt that my mother pieced and is quilted by Amish women in Arthur, IL for our bedspread. But a bed runner or a wall hanging for our guest bedroom would be nice.

Pillow shams are on my list to match a quilt that I just finished. In summer colors of yellow, orange, blue and green it will make a nice change from the down comforter of winter. Love Zen Chic designs!! Thanks for the chance in the giveaway.

I need to finish my pineapple quilt for my bedroom. I started many years ago and now have the blocks finished. Have to put them together and add borders to make it big enough. Then to quilt it. And instead of finishing it, I start new projects or pull out older projects...I think I'm scared I'll mess it up.
