Vintage Quilt Revival

I’ve been waiting to write this post for what feels like a very long time. In fact, it has almost been 15 months since Katie emailed Lee and I and asked the big question – would we be interested in writing a book together? Fast forward to today and the projects are finished, the patterns are written, the photos are taken….and we are very, very excited to finally “spill the beans”.

Vintage Quilt Revival: 22 Modern Designs from Classic Blocks is a book full of projects focused on my favorite little corner of the quilting world, Modern Traditionalism. We aren’t allowed to share too much just yet. But see those Sampler blocks on the cover? Each one of those has it’s own project that uses the traditional blocks in an exciting, updated, beautiful, unexpected way. I wish I could say more. And show more pictures. Such torture! Let’s just say I am extremely proud of every project in this book.

Katie, Lee and I have known each other for about three years now and I could probably gush for pages and pages about how lucky I am to have them as friends and co-authors. We are very excited to share more with you over the next several months as we get closer to the release date at the end of the year.

    Congratulations, Faith! I can’t wait to see the book. I really love how you take inspiration from the past and then put your own twist with color choices, scale, asymmetry, etc. to update classic blocks and make them your own. I’m glad your work is getting the attention it deserves. Good for you!

    With the 3 of you in charge, this book is going to be a ‘must have’ for many, many quilters :)

    Somebody heard my prayers! I put the book on my Amazon Wishlist because this is exactly what I love and collecting in a scrap book since two years. The book will be one of my treasures! Good luck to the three of you from Germany :-)

    What an incredible cover. One can only imagine what further surprises are in store for us. The quilt on the cover really embraces the term, modern vintage. And as a published author, I know the value of the rule in writing either fiction or non-fiction, “show, don’t tell,” and you have achieved that on the cover. I am really looking forward to opening that cover and discovering what’s inside for the reader and the quilter. Wishing you all much success!!
