I wrote a book. It’s on Amazon, and everything. I’m still a little in shock about it.
Writing a book is crazy town–but I really wanted to do it, because I needed to talk to you all about something. I needed to show you something. I wanted to show you awesome quilters out there just how versatile patterns are. How amazing the perfect pattern and quilt can be at transforming a space, and how critical fabric choices are. I wanted to put it into pictures, let you see lots of styles side by side, so you could see exactly what I mean. So you could see that just because a pattern cover shows a quilt made in fabrics you LOATHE, doesn’t mean the whole pattern is a lost cause. In fact–that horrible cover fabric might just be the perfect opportunity for you to make something completely fabulous–completely YOU–just by changing the fabric.
If you’re anything like a lot of people I know, you have to SEE it first. It’s hard to picture just what a quilt will look like in different fabrics when it’s staring you in the face with all those fabrics and colors that just. aren’t. you. It’s much easier to move on to a pattern that shows you JUST what it will look like finished–but you miss out on so much!
SO. I wrote a book that shows you different quilt patterns, and what they look like when you change up the fabric–making the style totally different. Because the goal here, is to make quilts that help your home, and specifically your bedroom–YOU.
I want you to use my book to make the perfect quilt for your room–my guess? You’ve made quilts for all the loved ones you have, and every sweet friend under the moon, but you just haven’t had a chance to make one for your own bed yet. There are also some fun ideas and suggestions for personalizing the “store-bought” parts of your bedding too–sheets, pillowcases and the like.
In Bedroom Style, Perfectly Pieced, I will help you figure out your personal style, which fabrics might be best choices for making a quilt in that style, and give you lots of visuals and whys. It will be like having a friend right there helping you get it just right. When you finish that quilt, and figure out how to apply what you’ve learned to ANY pattern, well, that’s a whole lot more quilting possibilities!
It’s time, friends. Time for you to make the perfect quilt for your bedroom. I’ll even make it easier on you by giving away some fabric bundles…
More about that later. First I need to ask out one simple question:

Wow this sounds amazing. We are just finishing a huge reno on our house and by the time we got to the master, we ran out of money!! I would love to enter your contest but I don’t have Facebook or Instagram… What can I do? Pinterest and email you pics of the book in my room?
Pinterest would be perfect! Just hashtag and email a link! :)
This is definitely going on my book list. Looks fabulous!
Thanks Carla! xoxo
Wow this would be awesome. Gonna order the book. We have been married for 23 years and I have never had the money to do our master bedroom. Always seem to have things come up. Wow if I had lamps and bedspread and rugs and curtains that coordinated I would be in heaven. We are just getting settled into our new place. After having to add electric and kitchen appliances and plumbing ( amish built and amish lived in log home) we only had enough to do our daughters rooms. Again! Haha. So as soon as I get the book I will take pic of my blank slate bedroom with mismatched hand me downs
Your home sounds incredible! The master bedroom always gets the short end of the stick, it seems like! xoxo
So excited for your book!!! And what a fun giveaway!! You are amazing girl!!
Thanks Melissa! Mwa! xoxo
love the fabric you are giving away this week. Looks like it’s going to be a great book.
Thank you! I wish I could make the quilt with this fabric–it’s going to be gorgeous!
Can’t wait to make one of the quilts for our bedroom! So excited about the new book!!!
Make sure you send me pictures, I want to see! xoxo
After 56 years of married life it is about time to replace our quilt. Beautiful timing. Thank you.
I’d say it’s time for sure! Make sure you enter on the Rafflecopter entry form so you have a chance to win! xoxo
I just entered the contest on Facebook. Fingers crossed. :}
Greetings, I am not entering the contest as I will leave the makeovers to the young. We built our dream house on the bay just over 3 year ago. I am not in need of any more makeovers nor do I have the energy for such doings. I am retired a teacher and enjoy your podcasts with Amy. I have made two of your patterns and truly love your straight forward sense of design. Thanks to you and Amy for sharing you time and talent with the podcasts. shelly beth
