Save 20% on select books plus free shipping

From-Sew-a-Modern-HomeIt’s the new year! Time for a fresh start, a fresh approach, a fresh look.

And definitely time for a fresh room makeover.

You can freshen up any room in your home quickly, creatively, and economically. How?

With quilts, of course!

It’s astonishing how a quilt can instantly transform the look and feel of a room, adding a splash of color and a dash of cozy goodness at the same time.

The New Year has us inspired to try new projects and possibilities throughout the home. How about you? Take a look at the quilts and decorating ideas below, all from books that are 20% off this week (plus free shipping in the US and Canada). Choose a look you love; then skip the demolition and rebuild—simply have a seat at your sewing machine instead!

  • We relocated in mid-November, so now that Christmas and New Year are over and I’m settled back into work after the break, I’m going to look at each room in our new home and decide what is needed in each room to make it ‘ours’. I think all of these books would help but, at this time of year I can probably only afford to buy one – but WHICH one? (decisions, decisions!)

  • P.S. I’ve been "looking" for my style – whatever the heck it was – since I began learning how to sew and quilt two years ago. Found the style in this issue. It’s Jo Norton’s! Love the fabrics, the style, the "oldness" that reminds me of my grandma. Wonderful. Just wonderful.

  • Best Wall Quilts just popped out at me. I love to have something bright on the wall, but don’t want to look at the same thing all the time. This looks like the perfect book to solve the problem!

  • My kitchen needs some help.
