Make Your Bed: Quilted Bed Runners, Pillows, and More to Suit Your Style by Leslee Evans is a collection of 36 quilting and patchwork patterns to help you decorate your bedroom according to your personal style. The book is divided into 9 different coordinated bedroom sets, each tailored to a different decorating style. Each set includes a bed runner and a pillow, but some sets offer patterns for the reverse sides the pillows and bed runners, as well as matching shams. Start with a plain bedspread as a background, and then add one of these bed runners to add instant pizzazz.

The overarching concept of Make Your Bed is that your bedroom decor should be easy to make and easy to change. Each of the beds in this book is first covered with a neutral quilt and then dressed up with colorful bed runners, pillows, and shams. Because each of these styles requires only a bed runner, and not a full quilt, you can finish these projects in less time with less fabric! You can also easily switch them out to reflect the changing seasons or simply for a change of pace. Many of the bed runner and pillow patterns are reversible, so you can quickly flip them over to give your bedroom a fresh, new look. All of the coordinated sets are designed to suit different styles. You can choose to make your bed colorful, earth, serene, or elegant. Although most of the sets fit a queen or king sized bed, many of the runners are well-suited to children's bedrooms as well. The "Sassy" set, for example, is designed especially for a little girl's room with colorful flowers and polka dots.

The 36 patterns in Make Your Bed allow you to show your style through easy, handmade bedroom decorations. With these creative patterns, you'll be excited to make your bed every morning!
