Quick Change Blog Hop

Hello Everyone and welcome to my blog!

For all of you that are new to Antler Quilt Design, I'll do a little introduction. My name is Doug Leko and I am the designer behind the name. I have been quilting since the age of 5, and started my own company at the age of 14. I have always loved quilting.

Please visit my website to learn more about me. www.antlerquiltdesign.com
(My exciting NEW website will be up and running very soon.)

I was honored when Karen Burn asked if I would contribute a bed runner for this book. Bed runners have always peeked my interest and I have published several other bed runners as single patterns or as a companion size in my full-size patterns.

My bed runner for the book Quick Change, is titled "Fireworks". The runner features Primitive Gatherings fabrics by Moda Fabrics.

What inspired your bed runner?

My bed runner was inspired by The Fourth of July. I imagined my family "up north" at the lake, watching all of the fireworks getting shot off into the night sky. The perfect connection - three of my favorite star blocks look just like colorful explosions.

The bed runner was beautifully quilted by the talented Natalia Bonner of Piece N Quilt

Do you have another favorite project from Quick Change? 
I like many of the other runners, but of my favorite is "White Diamonds" by Kimberly Jolly of Fat Quarter Shop.

I really like the classic two-color look.

What does the master bedroom of your dreams look like? 
This what my mater bedroom would look like. The feel and look is relaxing and calming. I really like the fireplace and the open door on the back side of the room. 

I hope you like the bed runner as much as I do!
