Book Review and Giveaway

COMMENTS CLOSED winner chosen!!
THANKS

Have you seen this new book?
I was asked by DRG to review a few quilt books for them this week.
I've done this once before and I was really interested in these.
I will be giving away a couple of the books this week.

The first one up this week is Bed Runners &More.

It includes 9 patterns for bed runners and six pillow sham styles.
Overall there are projects for a beginner all the way to advanced.
There are step-by-step instructions and color photos of each design. 

My favorite project is the patriotic runner.


I can totally see myself making this....
I'm always searching for seasonal or holiday patterns that can be used year round.
You know IF I forget to put that season away LOL.
About the giveaway,
If you would like to win a copy of Bed Runners & More then please leave a comment below.
Giveaway ends March 10th.
Good Luck.!

It looks like a great book. I can see that runners would really add a splash of color to the bed too.

I am just finishing my first bed runner and I love the idea of using a runner and pillow shams to decorate our bedroom. It is such a great way to change the look of a room quickly. This book looks great and I thank you for the chance to win!

It would be neat to have this book right now. You don't see many bed runners and of course my sister pointed one out to me yesterday as "wow, that's a cool idea." I think she would like one. I just need some inspiration. Thanks for the opportunity.

Angela Nussbaum said...

I love the idea of bed-runners. I never seem to have the time or energy with my 3 young girls to do a full bed sized quilt. I like the idea you have of having seasonal ones to switch out all year long. Now i need this book!! thanks.

This is the first time I have seen this book but would love to have it my collection. Am wanting to make a bed runner for my bed at the moment so inspiration would be wonderful.

Sunnybec said...

How funny, I have been thinking about making a few bed runners instead of quilts as quilting them (or should I say fighting with them) on my home machine is hard work! Thanks for the chance to win.

~Niki~ said...

Judy said...

We're getting ready for our annual Spring Cleaning and everyone needs new bed linens! Love all the inspiration. Thanks for the opportunity!

Yes please! I need a bed runner for the end of my bed so that the cats have a place to sleep and it's easier to wash instead of a quilt or comforter. Thanks for the chance, Vicki!

Jean Burke said...

Thanks for the chance to win - this is such a good idea - being able to swap out runners for holidays, etc. Not so time consuming as making a whole new quilt. Very clever....

Simone de Klerk said...

What an original book. This time not with quilts, but with bed runners. Love it! And then those pillow cases. Absolutely yummy!

Cal said...

I had been thinking of bed runners lately, but did not know they had an actual name, let alone that there was a book solely about them.

Oh wow! This is awesome! I just made a flannel bedrunner for my cats to lay on as I discovered they love flannel. But, I had no pattern. I just winged it. It's okay. But, I would so love to have this book to make a few AWESOME bedrunners!

Am I totally oblivious to a trend here? I had never heard of a bed runner. Sounds interesting. Thanks for the giveaway.

Malinda said...

I'm really loving this bed runner trend - what a great way to have something new, but not have to go through the lengthy process of making a bed sized quilt!

Sandy said...

I've always thought bedrunners would be cool to make....great book.
