Bed cover makeovers

Martingale - Quick Change (Print version + eBook bundle)Have you seen this book?  It gave me the idea of having a couple different, plain bed coverlets which can be spruced up with bed runners and matching pillows/pillowcases. What do you think? It would be a wonderful way to keep bedroom decor fresh without spending a ton of money and time!

Quick Change, compiled by Karen Burns at Martingale, showcases beautiful designs by a host of accomplished quilters, including Kimberly Jolly from Fat Quarter Shop. The 13 patterns offer many color/block combinations for when you just want to start working right away on a project. Alternatively, they provide enough inspiration and opportunity for you to customize a design to your own liking.

Patterns are divided into bold and bright, rich and earthy, ocean blues, and summertime. You can skip to the theme that appeals to you or make one of each. With that in mind, making one of each theme would make a perfect bridal shower gift...

Take a look at some of the gorgeous bed runners:

Whether you are a beginner (plenty of diagrams make the whole process soooo easy!) or an experienced quilter, the hardest part will be to decide which one to put together first. I am dealing with that 'problem' right now...

The book has an eVersion, too, which is great for those of  us who are running out of bookshelf room. If  you are looking for a quick, fun project or need a gift which will make a big impression without a huge investment of time and money, this may be the book for you.

Enjoy your day!

  1. Thank you for recommending this book, Denise. I have been wanting to make a bed runner (or three) to jazz up our bed. This looks like the book I need! (I just found and bought the book 1/2 price on eBay, so it's now on its way.)


I am so glad you are taking the time to leave a comment. It is always nice to hear from you!
