Vintage Quilt Revival is written by some of my favorite quilt bloggers. Katie Clark Blakesley of SwimBikeQuilt, Lee Heinrich of FreshlyPieced, and Faith Jones of FreshLemonsQuilts. I have to admit that I have not made any of the quilts out of this book yet, but many have caught my eye.
Below is one the quilt patterns that caught my eye.
- All the blocks that are presented can be swap into a project that corresponds with another block.
- There are explanations on how the designer made the block modern.
- The blocks can be made into a sampler quilt and the book presents three different layouts.
- There are simple pieced to advanced pieced blocks for the beginner to advanced quilter.
A lot of the block are foundation paper pieced and the book comes with a CD so that you can print the templates instead of trying to copy them off. I love that as I have hard time copying patterns to get them to copy right.
I highly recommend this book, even if just to look at the beautiful quilts.
