Vintage Vibe

Good morning!  Today we're blog hopping on the Vintage Vibe blog tour!  I was luck to meet Amber Johnson at Quilt Market  in Houston and she asked if I'd like to participate. Luckily I was already in love with the book and said YES!

There are 14 great projects in this book.  Amber includes little tidbits about her inspiration for the quilts and helpful hints along the way. The instructions are clear and concise and of course there are excellent illustrations.   Even though I've been quilting for a long time, I find it's good revisit those  instructions from time to time.

My favorite project in the book is Sugar, pictured above. It combines a couple of my favorite things, tulips and Flower Sugar fabric!  Amber has designed a dainty version as well, Sugar Sweet,  as these are sister quilts, reminiscent of her childhood sharing a room with her sisters!

Vintage Vibe Sugar Block
Vintage.. well that's all relative right? Amber's grandmother taught her how to quilt and  in the Scrap Jars quilt pictured below, she contributed  three pieces of vintage fabric for the project.  Amber invites us to figure out which are the vintage pieces.

Holy cow. I'M VINTAGE!  I made a quilt with two out of three of those pieces!

Oh I love the Sugar quilt you picked as your favourite. I also love flower Sugar fabric. I think it pairs really well with PKM fabric and have done so in a couple of quilts!
