Warning: Happy Home is an explosion of colors. Enter at your own risk!

Seriously though, if you love Jennifer Paganelli's style, I don't see why this book won't be a favorite. There is an overload of amazing hues and patterns. The palette is bright, bold, happy and festive. The 21 projects are designed to help you transform your home into a vivid, happy space filled with cute, pretty and girly accessories. There are tutorials for ruffle pillows, fabric-covered boxes, bags, a basket, a bed cover,
Flipped through, as it's mostly sewing instructions and patterns. I love the bright-on-bright patterns of the author's fabrics! Another nice book design from Chronicle Books.

Oh my! This cover is wonderful enough to make a woman want to buy this book. I absolutely love Jennifer Paganelli's fabric line, Sis Boom. The projects were well planned with easy to follow illustrations. But, what I loved most were the illustrations. I plan to make my first quilt this summer. This book firmedup my decision to use Sis Boom fabrics for the quilt.

These items are for the sewer who is more advanced than I. They are for a girly girls home and my hubby wouldn't like living with these decorations throughout the house. I myself would like a few of the items but won't be making any of the designs.

This book is cute - but all the patterns are available in more helpful versions (and with feedback) on the internet. There was nothing original here.

Loved the color palette, it's a very pretty book. I don't know that I'd make much in it since I'm still very much a beginning sewer, but good inspiration.

2* This is a pretty book, but I will not make any of these projects because they are not my style, I guess. They are a little too ruffly and flowery.

This book was different then I thought it would be. The crafts in here are more party crafts than useful crafts for your home.
