Leslee Evans has come up with a great collection of quilted bed runners, each of which is accompanied by coordinated extra items which can transform your bedroom without the bother or expense of making a full sized bed quilt. Leslee matches bed runners with embellished sheets, pillows and shams, using a range of different techniques and styles. If you feel overawed by the idea of completing a large project then this is a clever alternative. Completing one item at a time gives you more flexibility in deciding how many of the projects you want to make, and also ensures that the chosen theme is spread across a number of focal points in the room. Some of the designs are double sided, so you also get a choice of which design to display, whilst knowing it will coordinate well with the other items. This is a really good idea as it encourages you to experiment with styles and techniques, and the combination of lots of smaller projects will encourage you to finish the set. The designs themselves are fairly bold and contemporary, but there are a couple of project sets featuring more traditional blocks, but set in a modern, interesting layout.
