Dress up your home in something fresh for the holidays! These quilts and holiday decorations from designer/blogger Amanda Murphy take Christmas in a bright new direction that updates the traditional reds and greens with blues, pinks, and whites. 18 festive projects include 9 quilts and 9 home decorations: seasonal pillows, a tree skirt, advent calendar, Christmas stocking, and more. Create modern looks with favorite blocks like Flying Geese, Dresden Plate, and Hexagon. Use all your skills: piecing, applique, and hand embellishment. Make many of the quilts for any season with a simple change of fabrics.
Amanda Murphy discovered quilting after a career as a graphic designer and art director.
