Instagram sensation Susan Ache returns with a dozen spectacular quilts for Christmas. And most can be displayed year-round!
Many quilters want to decorate with Christmas quilts during the holidays--but who wants to pack them away for 11 months of the year? Softer shades of red and green suit all seasons, whether for snuggling up on the couch in December, enjoying late-night campfires in June, or relaxing on the deck in October. Choose among exquisite quilts with traditional roots and lighthearted quilts that capture the magic of the season. When Christmas rolls around, any of them can take center stage.
Knowing only that she wanted to feature embroidery and Nine Patch blocks, Susan Ache taught herself to make her first quilt. Quiltmaking opened up a new world to this mom of five now-grown children. She turned many hours of reading about quiltmaking into a lifelong passion for creating beautiful quilts.
Susan finds color inspiration in her native Florida surroundings. She's always searching for new and fun ways to show off as many colors as she can in a quilt. Most of her quilts are a creative impulse inspired by a trip to the garden center, a photograph in a magazine, or a few paint-color samples. She never sees just the quilt--she sees the room where the quilt belongs.
Working in a quilt store for years helped cultivate Susan's love of color and fabric. Find Susan on Pinterest and Instagram as @yrdgrl60.
