Long time no decor, I am back and fueled up, because I wanted to share with all of you some amazing projects for the home I came across. As you may know, Sharon Holland is one of our lovely designers, who just released a book called Utility Style: Quilts for Everday Living- which primarily talks about the various pattern designs and styles for quilts. I wanted to take you on a tour and give you a little behind-the-scenes on what this book has to offer and how the different quilts can be applied to any space in your home.
1. Making a quilt that you can always throw on your sofa to add an extra level of comfy to TV nights is a must. An eclectic design as the Hawthorn pattern will accentuate any couch and if you choose to follow the color scheme Sharon recommends, then it will certainly lift any space up.
2. I am a big fan of hanging quilts, and by big I mean enormous. Beautiful quilts like these are meant to be observed, and no better way to display them than to hang them in a room and make them the focal point. The Pixel pattern clearly is meant to be displayed and best of all its beginner friendly, so if you've just started quilting, definitely give it a go with this design!
3. Snuggle with your quilt outdoors with this Goose Chase pattern, which can easily be made using leftover halves! So, save in fabric and splurge on a yummy picnic outside to enjoy this design in some natural lighting.
4. Don't let the Sunday Paper pattern intimidate you with its size, this big quilt uses 36'' blocks which makes the piecing go fast! Few seams and larger pieces of fabric make up for an easy flowing quilt to make and leave outside for those cozy winter nights.
5. The ultimate display of a quilt can't be no other than as a table runner. Gather your family around the table for some food, drinks or good conversation as this Viewpoint pattern draws everyone in.
aaaaand that's a wrap! IIf you see yourself making any of these patterns or are curious for more, make sure to click on here and get your own copy! The book is definitely a must-have, and since the holidays are coming... what better gift to give or get than Sharon Holland's Utility Stylebook?
