Hello everyone! It’s Kimberly and Jocelyn here today on the Jolly Jabber and we are so honored to be a part of a new book by Martingale called Quick Change: Refresh a Room Fast with Quilted Bed Runners. This book includes thirteen fabulous bed runners designed by some amazing quilt designers. As part of the blog hop, we were invited to answer a few fun Designer Q & A, so let’s get started!
What inspired your bed runner?
Kimberly: My bed runner, White Diamonds, was inspired by a tile pattern at a hotel in my favorite city, Las Vegas. I wanted to recreate this design and use colors that would match my bedroom which is very simple with creams and whites with touches of blue.

Jocelyn: My bed runner, Hester’s Crossing, began with my mother-in-law asking me for an orginal tablerunner she could make for her kitchen counter. As luck would have it, that same week I had the opportunity to submit designs for this awesome book, and the tablerunner morphed into a large bed runner! The name came from a few places, my mother-in-law’s name, plus the whimsical loops and crosses that are formed by the prints, and the fact that there really is a Hester’s Crossing here in Texas.

Do you have other favorite projects from Quick Change?
Kimberly: I love the simplicity of Brigitte Heitland’s Zen Chic bed runner.
Jocelyn: I love the clean-ness and simplicity of Kimberly’s White Diamonds runner and I also love Vintage Petal by Heather Andrus and Megan Jimenez of Quilt Story. I love the contrast of the bright pops of color on the beige background, plus the awesome orange peel circles.
What does the master bedroom of your dreams look like?
Kimberly: My dream master bedroom would have all white furniture with aqua accents. I really like the classic meets shabby-chic look for my home.

Jocelyn: My dream master bedroom would be a tranquil blue, very minimal with wood furniture and exposed beams. And big windows with a window seat for reading!
