Vintage Quilt Revival is a resource for quilters of any age or style who love to use today's modern colors and fabrics. With fresh quilt layouts, detailed instructions on foundation piecing, and a wide variety of traditional blocks and modern projects, Vintage Quilt Revival is at the forefront of the burgeoning interest in the "traditional-made-modern" movement.

Join the authors and make 20 traditional quilt blocks. Use them to sew a sampler quilt or explore the authors' tips and modifications for making the blocks fresh and appealing and use them to create quilts with a modern flair. Projects range from full-size quilts to a pillow, table runner, bag, and zipper pouch.

Learn bits of quilting history throughout the book and see design tips on how to take traditional quilt blocks and piecing techniques and give them a modern spin. If you're already knowledgeable about piecing, basting, quilting, and binding, this book is an essential addition to your library.

"I believe that the strength of the book lies in its detailed, explicit, and encouraging directions. This is truly a great book for skill building. It utilizes a variety of techniques, including simple foundation paper piecing and sewing partial seams. A CD in the back of the book include full size templates and pattern pieces for all the blocks." --Felicia's World
