Vintage Quilt Revival Blog Hop

This morning I am super happy to get to share with you a little peek into Vintage Quilt Revival, a new book written by the ever so amazingly talented Katie Blakesley of Swim Bike Quilt, Lee Heinrich of Freshly Pieced and Faith Jones of Fresh Lemons Quilts. All three of these ladies are wonderful friends, amazing designers, and beautiful writers.  If you have followed along with their blogs you have seen this.  So I knew that a book written by them would be amazing and this book is just that, amazing!!!  It is jam packed with wonderful design advice, insightful mini history lessons, fresh layouts, stunning photography, and helpful tidbits.  This book will be a fantastic addition to anyones quilting library :)

As part of the blog hop, each participant was asked to make a block from the book.  My block is the Mosaic No. 19 block.  I know, fancy name right ;)  I had so much fun pulling some wonderful bright and happy prints from my stash.  The block went together quickly and you know how I just love a block with lots and lot of points ;)  

You can follow along with the rest of the blog hop as listed below.   And then, on Friday be sure to check out Katie, Lee, and Faith's blog where they will take this block and a block from all of these super-talented quilty friends and turn them into 3 beautiful sampler quilts for charity.  I can't wait to see them ;)
