Summary

For best-selling quilting author and fabric designer, Lynette Jensen, all the comforts of home are found in this lovingly restored two-story Colonial she shares with her husband Neil and two grown children. Through a tour of her home and gardens in this lavishly-illustrated book Lynette shares her secrets for successful classic country decorating and her love of quilts and quilting. She shows you how to easily mix and match colors, blend decorating styles, and highlight favorite family pieces through a simple planning process that takes you from basic to beautiful in a matter of minutes. Each chapter is devoted to a season -- spring, summer, harvest, and holiday -- filled with ideas, recipes and projects for fun with fabric, surface design, home decor, woodpainting and stenciling. Step-by-step how-tos, illustrations, full-size patterns, along with a complete guide to materials and sources, provide a hands-on guide to creating it yourself, Lynette has also included a special section of swatches to go -- coordinating her fabric and color chips with each season that blend perfectly to transition you through the year in style. If making harmony the heart of your home is as important to you as it is to Lynette, then Classic Country is meant for you
