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.
