Vintage Vibe Blog Tour - Twirl!!!

Today is my stop on the Vintage Vibe Blog Tour and I am so excited to share a little more about this book with you ;)  Vintage Vibe was written by Amber Johnson of Gigi's Thimble Quilt Patterns.  I met Amber in person at Fall Market and we became instant friends :)  Amber has such a classic feel about her and so it was no surprise that she wrote about taking Traditional Quilts and giving them a Fresh Fabric makeover :)

We were each asked to review a particular quilt in the book.  I was instantly drawn to Twirl, and you can probably see why.  It is a Stunner!!!  Precise piecing, perfect points, and lots of movement.  Oh ya, totally my kind of quilt!!

Twirl is made up of 2 different blocks and both are so fun and classy!!  I love the way the blocks play off of one another as well.  And you all know, I can never get enough pinwheels, and I just love the contrast of the print and white pinwheels in the 2 blocks :)

Amber has a really fun way to put these blocks together, so of course, I totally had to try one.  I made Block B  (the ones in the middle of the quilt) and oh my, it was so such a fun block to make :)  Look at all of those points, so fun!!  I just love it.

This block will be going into my Grandparent's Bees Knees quilt!!!  Doesn't it looks so fun there in the center!!  Just a few more blocks that are in the mail and I will be putting this one together ;)

Be sure to pop on over to Amber's to check out all the stops on the Vintage Vibe Blog Tour.  It will be going on to the end of the month and there are some amazing stops that have already posted.   Lots and lots of Quilty Goodness :)  And I want to say Thank You to Amber for being such a lovely friend and having me as part of her awesome book's hop ;)

You can find Vintage Vibe on Amazon or if you want an autographed copy check out Amber's Etsy shop ;)

Thanks for stopping by today and have a Happy Quilting Day!!
