a sugary quilt

Help me! I can't stop myself from starting new quilt projects! But I love my fat quarter bundle that I put together for Fat Quarter Shop so much that I just HAD to start another quilt.

Ok, so what to use for a pattern? Well, I bought the new Vintage Vibe book by Amber Johnson a few months ago. It's full of great patterns that are "a little bit vintage, a little bit modern". Perfect for me. The quilts all look familiar, but updated. There are fun little tips scattered throughout the book, and all of the fabric is identified by name and manufacturer. That's important to me. I've followed Amber's blog for quite awhile, and she's always on Instagram with fun stuff.

I knew right away that I wanted to make the Sugar quilt. It's a big 'ol bunch of tulip blooms. They're big 9" blocks, and only 8 fat quarters are needed. (The Greg Jones blogger bundle has 11 prints, three solids and 1 white-on-white print, which I've used for my background. That means I can make this quilt and still have leftovers for the mini quilt, which is also in the book!)

Only 32 of these flower blocks are needed for a 64" x 80" quilt so this should be really fast to put together, and a perfect size for my sofa. And fast is important right now because you know that I'm already planning the NEXT quilt.

Happy weekend, everybody!
