Yesterday I pulled fabric for a fun new quilty project.
That's my very favorite part when I start a new quilt…
the colors and style of the fabric set the tone of the finished product.
For this one I wanted some colorful and happy prints
with a medium to large scale….
and of course with a vintage vibe:)
Because today is my turn on the
Vintage Vibe is the first book by my
super cute friend Amber Johnson
and its a super cute book!!!
One of the quilts inside
the pages of this fun book is called
" Lovely "
and that's the one I'm going to make!
Isn't it sweet???
It's a happy banner/bunting quilt which is
perfect for a vintage celebration.
Amber's pattern is layer cake friendly
and I chose to use my Millie's Closet fabric
and my Vintage Happy white with green print
for the background.
I love how the colors and styles of both collections go together.
I always keep that in mind as
I'm designing each of the
Bee in my Bonnet fabric collections…
because I like to use them all together
like one super big…
super happy …
super vintagey fabric collection!!!
Amber used ricrac in her
quilt to join the banner together.
I think I'll use
several colors for mine.
The Riley Blake Ric Racs
notions are perfect:)
Amber also appliquéd a few hearts
on some of the pennants
and I'll be using red hearts appliquéd
on coordinating solids for mine.
the "Lovely" quilt has
kind of a
birthday celebration vibe...
And with the addition of
it could totally be
quilt as well…
which is what I was going for
my birthday is 2 days
after valentines day and so
when I was a girl…
my mom always decorated
all of my birthday parties
with a valentine theme
and I have always loved that!!!
to go visit Amber
and to see more of the projects
in her beautiful book.
I promise that you will
want to add it
to your quilty library!
Have a quilty kind of day…
