Book Preface

Making my bed in the morning ha~ never been my ~trong ~uit. But thi~ book i~n’t aboutmaking your bed. It’~ about making your bed a piece of art. 0ne that reflect~ your per~ona1ity. 0ne that can change with the ~ea~on~. 0ne that ~et~ your creativity free.

Start with a blank canvas, such as a white duvet or a textured matelasse bedspread. Then, splash on personality with a long strip of fabric-a bed runner that is pieced, quilted, and embellished with yummy, fun things like tassels and crystals that were formerly forbidden on bed quilts. Turn back the top sheet to reveal a band of color, toss on shams and a few pillows, and-bam! You have a beautiful bed! While a bed runner is reminiscent of a traditional quilt, it’s more like the blanket that is artfully tossed on the end of a bed in design magazines to give a space color and warmth. It’s small enough to temper the “Oh my goodness, this is going to take forever!” fear. It gives you creative freedom because a bed runner is meant to be art, which grants it the privilege of providing the snuggly accent of a typical bed quilt or existing just for the sake of beauty. Plus, bed runners require a fraction of the materials used to make a standard quilt, so you can feel secure in the knowledge that if you don’t love the finished product, it didn’t cost you a fortune, either in fabric or time.

Each of the nine ensembles gives instructions for making a bed runner (with the exception of the “Sassy” ensemble runners, all of the runners fit a queen- or king-sized bed) and several accessories, like pillows, shams, and embellished sheets that match the runner. Four of the nine projects also give instructions for a “flip side,” which is simply a complete second design on the back of the runner. Even some of the pillows can be flipped. The best part about a runner or pillow’s flipability is how
easily your bedroom can be transformed. A simple flip to the runner and pillows gives a whole new look!

Choices, choices, choices. With so much inspiration, I hope you find joy in making your bed every day!
