You must have this book, it is a wonderful book, especially if you love country accents!! The book goes though each room of the house with ideas for things to sew to give a home a very homey touch which double as organizing your home. All the projects use modern colors and fabric that make fresh clean looks in the home. The projects make you think relax, I am home. The quilts in the book are very simply done, yet give a very dramatic and unique touch to your home. All the projects are simply done, with fabric being the center of attention. I love the use of word and letters especially the words such as Pure, Simple etc. I have three projects picked out and one I want to do for Christmas!! Must have this book for your library.
The ladies at Sweetwater put out some of my very favorite fabrics. They have a genius ability to combine soft colors and crisp textures. This book provides plenty of eye candy of their fabrics and fun designs. The book is packed with projects, 35 in all, that focus on different rooms in the home. There are not many quilt designs if you are looking for that, but it is filled with smaller, easy to finish projects. I particularly like the ones that make use of their custom labels! There is an adorable organizer for keeping track of birthdays and a darling framed mini quilt. The whole book makes you see how every room can really be filled with a handmade item. Placemats, napkins, laundry baskets, quilts, jar labels...it's all in there!
So, do I start making the Sweet Dreams bedding? The Good Food, Good Friends, Good Times wallhangings? Quilts? Kitchen? Office? Maybe just start at Page 1 and sew my way through.Sweetwater's Simple Home is simply amazing! With 35 projects, there is something to create for every room in your home with complete, clear instructions. And, of course, everything is beautiful and subtle with the fabrics they have designed.If you love to decorate and sew, this book is a must-have. Refreshingly simple, beautifully created by three very talented women. I think I'm starting in my office with the office chair cover and a matching lampshade!
This book is full of projects that I can't wait to make and directions clear enough I think I'll actually be able to! I agree with another commenter-my favorite project is the birthday organizer!I love how much variety they have-some quilts, some table linens, some pillows, some random decorative stuff. All of their projects are pretty straightforward, and if done in the right fabric, would go with most houses pretty well.Definitely worth reading yourself or buying for the seamstress in your life!
I was extremely thrilled with this purchase. I teach sewing and this book gave some really good project ideas. Plus it provided a new way to bind quilts that I had never seen before. Makes binding a quilt absolutely beautiful!!!!!
You'll find lots of projects you like and want to make in this stylish book. 36 projects that will make your house into your home. Good advice, hints and professional tips are combined with techniques for making quilted objects such as quilts, pillows, table linen and ideas for the office, bedroom, laundry room, baby room and more. I'd start right at the beginning with the circle quilt, it's lovely. Love the scalloped place mats and circle coasters too. Practical yet fresh designs and ideas.

I wasn't absolutely certain about this book because I had never actually seen it before in a bookstore. When I received it, however, I was immediately impressed. The instructions seem to be very clear, and the projects are beautiful. The book contains sewing and general craft projects to decorate the house and turn it into an inviting and personalized home. Overall, a worthwhile buy!
I like Sweetwater's fabric lines so the book was a must. I love the photos in it, though I haven't yet made anything from it. Every project looks like fun and all the designs are pretty unique.
