Vintage Vibe is by Amber Johnson (her blog is A Little Bit Biased.) She has been designing patterns for a while now and I love her clean, fresh style. This book is a collection of brand new patterns.
Here are a few of her patterns from the book. All of them have classic quilt inspiration, but with a fresh new twist. This one is called Playing Favorites. (Book photos are shot by Brent Kane, courtesy of Martingale.)
This is a mini quilt called Scrap Jars and as soon as I saw it, I wanted to make one. It’s so perfect for showing off favorite prints.
Here’s my version in progress. All of the ‘jar’s are made from precious scraps to represent things I personally love: my kids, my neighborhood, the beehive is for my state – Utah, the Beehive State – England, Paris, sewing, a few Cath Kidston and Liberty prints I bought on our trip this summer, etc.
I was having a hard time deciding on what sashing to use since so many of my fabrics have a light background and I needed some contrast. At first I was trying to go neutral with a linen or gray, but the whole thing looked washed out.
