Sweetwater's Simple Home

Sweetwater's new book, Simple Home, was released just about the same time as our Summer at the Lake Quilts book. C&T did a beautiful job with both books (did you expect anything less than perfect from C&T?).

Sweetwater's Simple Home is a Stash Book.  We love those Stash Books--they're smaller, fatter, and just all-around fun to thumb through.  And, Simple Home is a treasure trove of wonderful projects for your home.  Everything in the book is something I would love.  You just get that warm and cozy feeling from the projects.  They decorate everything from the baby's room to the laundry room.  And, it's practical.  And fun.

The book contains 35 beginner-friendly projects, including quilts, pillows, table linens, and accessories and many can be made in a day or less.

The Sweetwater girls--Karla and her two daughters, Lisa and Susan--really pulled out all the stops with their photography.  From the sweet little chair of quilts on the cover to the bed in the woods, they just know how to get our creative juices flowing.  They're from Colorado.  Maybe that's what makes their projects so down-home and cozy.  You know how us Montana girls love other western states like Colorado.

Sweetwater designs fabric for Moda Fabrics and we all love to visit their booth each Quilt Market and take a peek around.  We definitely need to meet up with these girls next market.

One of my faves from the book.

If you love to decorate your house with warm, wonderful stuff,  or give a beautiful gift to a friend, this is the book for you!
