As far as my quilting experience goes I have cut out a stack of 4″x4″ squares in the hope of making a quilt but they’re still sitting on a shelf after 7 years. So, my quilting expertise and knowledge is practically at a zero. However, I do love looking at beautiful quilts and after helping some neighbor ladies make a quilt ( I requested the simple part) I realized how it’s not exactly as easy as I imagined. My urge to make a quilt is increasing partially because at work I’m surrounded by lovely and amazing quilts and, I also get to peruse gems like Vintage Quilt Revival: 22 Modern Designs from Classic Blocks by Blakesley, Heinrich & Jones.
I love the blending of new, modern looks with vintage, time tested traditional blocks. Plus, as a history buff on just about everything I appreciated the historical look back at traditional quilting, blocks and piecing techniques.
Plus, this book comes with a CD of 12 printable template patterns.
So, if you are new to quilting or a veteran at it let me know in the comments section below on what is your favorite block, technique or if you are a fan of blending the modern colors with vintage style.
