Book of the Month January 2014: Vintage Quilt Revival

It's time again for a new Book of the Month! This month we have selected Vintage Quilt Revival by Katie Blakesley, Lee Heinrich and Faith Jones as our January 2014 Book of the Month. And don't forget, the Book of the Month is 20% off all month!


Modern traditionalism is definitely a favorite term among quilters. So many of us tend to love quilts that blend modern fabrics and ideas with traditional quilt blocks. If this rings true to you, we have found a quilt book that will surely wind up on your book shelves.


Vintage Quilt Revival is filled with new ways to use traditional quilt blocks. Throughout the book, you will find patterns for 20 traditional quilt blocks and accompanying projects that appeal to the modern day quilter. These fresh layouts and new projects allow the traditional quilt blocks to shine! The projects in the book range from full-size quilts to smaller sewing projects like pillows, bags, and zipper pouches.


To add to the traditional fun, the book contains snippets of history to support various quilting trends. Want to know more about scrap quilts? There is a little historical snippet. What about red and white quilts? There is one about those too.


To finish the book with a bang, there are instructions for sampler quilts that feature all 20 traditional quilt blocks. Now what are you waiting for? Join in the Vintage Quilt Revival and get your copy at 20% off all month long!

Wondering if there is some direction on how to "salvage a quick jelly roll quilt" that I attempted via your Utube instruction by Kimberly? I obviously don't have the whole 1/4" thing down very well. It doesn't line up correctly. Can I do some strips around to save it??? Any ideas would be helpful. If you could email me at judi.kettering@comcast.net, I would appreciate it.
