Vintage Vibe Book–The Blog Tour

Vintage Vibe

Today is my stop on the Vintage Vibe Book blog tour!  My very talented friend Amber is a blogger, pattern designer and now author!  Her book, Vintage Vibe is filled with lovely quilts, great ideas, and gorgeous photography.

I first got the chance to flip through her book at Quilt Market and I instantly fell in love with this quilt – called Dashing.  I just love a classic black and white quilt, but also I saw all of the fun possibilities with this pattern.

I pulled this stack of fabrics (Best Day Ever by April Rosenthal for Moda + some various low volume prints) as a possibility.  I’m still thinking about this though – all green and grays would be fun too.  Sometimes it's just so hard to decide.

The other quilts from the book that I love are this one called “Vintage Vibe"...

…and this one called “Skipper.”

You can buy a copy of Vintage Vibe here or from Amazon or add it to your Christmas list - it's not too late, right?  You'll love this book!

Be sure to check out the other stops on the blog hop.  Each blogger has chosen a different project to highlight so if you follow the entire tour, you’ll get to see all of them!  I’ll tell you now, it’s tough to choose just ONE favorite.

  2. I like all the quilts you showed. Have a Merry Christmas.

  3. Best Day Ever would be the perfect choice! Dashing would be my first quilt to make in the book...love it! Merry Christmas!

  4. I love the black and white quilt.

  5. Hey Andy! I'm behind in my blogging and checking in on the blog tour stops! But I'm happy to finally get a minute to stop by your blog! I think the Best Day Ever brights and low volumes would be fabulous for Dashing. I hope I get to see that someday! Thank you so much for participating in the Vintage Vibe Blog Tour and for your friendship! Hopefully we can get together after the holidays for a sew day! Merry Christmas!

  6. Whoa! Totally in love with that one called "Skipper"! Thanks for posting, will definitely need to check out this book!
