Quick Quilts for Home by Debbie Mumm

Published 2010

Debbie Mumm's newest collection of quilts and home accessories is sure to be a hit with quilters and home sewers who have an eye on the dime and an interest in "living green." The do-it-yourself decorating emphasis of the book is designed to help anyone create an appealing home with the distinctive stamp of a quilter. Offering 50 projects, the book focuses on using quick-and-easy quilts as the centerpiece of a room and creating spin-off coordinated craft projects to pull together custom looks. Each page brims with creative ways to bring a new mood, colors, warmth, and texture to the home by using items that can be handmade or on-hand items that can be given a new purpose. Chapters focus on quilting for specific areas of the home: Outdoor Rooms, Living Places, Eating Areas, Relaxation Spaces, and Work/Craft Stations. Appropriate projects for the various areas include lap quilts, pillows, door or wall banners, table quilts, placemats, hot pads, aprons, window treatments, and other items.
