Vintage Vibe Book Blog Tour !!!

Goodness it's been a while since I posted!

Life has been interesting, busy, productive, crazy, fun, and filled completely full.  But all is good and I have something fun to share with you today!

My friend Amber has just released her first book...and I was invited to be a part of her blog tour!  So... Let me introduce you to Vintage Vibe...Traditional Quilts , Fresh Fabrics... It's absolutely fabulous!

I've been a fan of Amber's quilts, patterns and projects for a while now... She was one of the first bloggers I featured in my Needle Little Inspiration posts... {way back when}

And one of my all time favorite quilt patterns is from Amber, called the Scrap Jar Star. I've made two of them and working on a third one!  

So..... you can say that I was a bit thrilled to find a new pattern in Amber's book inspired by her Scrap Jar Star called Big Baby...

Quilt by Amber Johnson... Photographer Brent Kane for Martingale

LOVE would be an understatement....

Not only am I sucker for classic quilt blocks especially a star.  But you know I'm a happy quilter when it involves scraps or fabric from my stash.

And when you take one of my favorite quilts / quilt block and make it big and fast and easy! You've got a winner in my book!

Quilt sewn by Jodi Nelson from pattern in the book Vintage Vibe by Amber Johnson

I've made two tops already and working on a third one.. The pattern is super easy and the quilt goes together so quickly. I'm pretty sure this will be my go to baby quilt pattern.
This is the first top I made.  Navy's and Aqua's and a white background.  I'm anxious to get this quilted!  

I'm also thinking of making a BIG quilt using this quilt pattern as BIG BLOCKS! wouldn't that be fun! 

You can find the book on Amazon HERE

But be sure to stop by the other blogs on the tour and see what everyone is up to.

Love the fresh look of Ambers quilts. Best thing is they would look awesome in any color choice!

Love the colors that you used. I made Amber's quilt, too. I love it and use it on my bed.

Jodi! Your quilt is so cute! I can't wait to see it all quilted up and I'm so thrilled you've started a third one! Thanks for joining the blog tour and for being such a great inspiration to ME!
