***GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED***
Updated: The winner is Carol! Congratulations! :)
Hello! I'm delighted to be a part of a new book called Quick Change: Refresh a Room Fast with Quilted Bed Runners. I was lucky enough to have two runners picked for this book (and I kind of even have my own section, "Bold and Bright"... Fitting, no? Hehe!)
We've got a little Q&A from Martingale, so here goes...
What inspired your bed runners?
The first runner I designed is called Wild Goose Chase and I've always liked flying geese placed very randomly, going in different directions. The swirls of the quilting are meant to mimic the wind as the geese flapped away!
My other runner design was inspired by my friend Katy's Spring Carnival EPP pattern. I played around with the idea of taking one section and making the pieces bigger so that they could be machine-sewn. The name Jewel Rings came from the fact that I wanted to use jewel tone colours so that they'd shine beautifully against the dark background.
Do you have other favourite projects from Quick Change?
I think Winding Roads by Megan Jimenez of Quilt Story is really great, and Vintage Petal by Heather Andrus and Megan Jimenez of Quilt Story is just adorable.
What does the master bedroom of your dreams look like?
This. It would look like this. I mean, I love my bedroom... it's bright yet cosy, and my quilt / doona came is on point. But this room is just so soft and put together. Love!
And now, for the fun part! Martingale is giving away one free eBook, so please feel free to join this giveaway! Simply make a comment, and I'll choose a winner on Tuesday, May 12. Good luck!
