Quick Change Blog Hop

I am so excited to share this new book with you. I was asked to submit a design for this wonderful project last year and now it is finally finished and ready for all of you to enjoy. The concept of the book is that instead of making one bed quilt, you can make an assortment of bed runners. This way you can change the look of your room by simply changing the runner. I have to say I love all the runners in this book and hope you do to. On this Blog hop I am doing a Q&A with the publishers to share my inspirations for the project I did for the book.

What inspired your Bed Runner?

I was asked to design a runner of the book and at the same time I had received artwork for Pat Sloan's One for You, One For Me fabric line. As it happens, her fabric had daisies all over it and if you know me, you know I LOVE daisies.  I decided that was the perfect match. So I used the fabric as my inspiration for the runner design. I wanted the runner to look like a geometric flower garden with the daisy print peeking out among the pieces.

Do you have other favorite projects from Quick Change?

It is hard to pick. I can see myself with lots of these runners. I would have to say one of my favorites is Jewel Rings by Audrie Bidwell.  I love the use of color and the movement of the pattern.

What does the Master bedroom of your dreams look like?

I love a bedroom that has a soothing background with a pop of color here and there. I have always found blue and white rooms very peaceful.  This picture is as close as I could find for my dream bedroom but I would definitely add a pop of color here and there. (Like perhaps adding a bed runner).

I hope you enjoy the Blog Hop. Here are the other designers who are participating in the hop. \
