Vintage Vibe Book Giveaway

Happy New Year Friends!
I hope you all had a wonderful holiday season spent with the ones you love.  Things were quiet around here - just the way we like it :)


I just want to take a minute to thank all of you! This little blog of mine allows me to record my quilting journey and as really cool bonus, I've made some wonderful friendships along the way!  I appreciate all the encouragement this past year as I accomplished one of my past goals of becoming an author.  It was a dream come true and I know I talked about it A LOT :)  So thanks to those of you who stuck around and cheered me on!  Thanks to those of you who support my little pattern business too.  I kind of love designing patterns and I'm glad you like them too.  

As a thank you for being AWESOME and to wrap up the Vintage Vibe Blog Tour I want to give away 1 autographed copy of Vintage Vibe.  To enter, just leave a comment below (you might even get bonus points if you tell me which Vintage Vibe project is your favorite.  If you're not sure, check out some of the stops on the blog tour where each project has been highlighted.  I made it really easy for you - just click on the links below or stop by the Martingale website and click on the Vintage Vibe gallery.)  I'll pick a winner in the next few days.

Me - Skipper
April Rosenthal - Growing Up
Jessie Finchman - Rainy Day Table Runner
The Fat Quarter Shop - Vintage Vibe
Corey Yoder - Playing Favorites
Sherri McConnell - Scrap Jars
Jodi Nelson - Big Baby
Melissa Corry - Twirl
Pam Vieira-McGinnis- Sugar
Heather Andrus - Sugar Sweet
Andy Knowlton - Dashing
Amy Smart - Scrap Jars
Melissa Mortenson - Pretty Petals
Lori Holt - Lovely

Thanks again!
~ Amber

Congratulations on this book, which I've seen in the blog inverse many times and plan to,purchase when the post Christmas debts are paid off. My favourite is the twirls pattern. I live the circular effect created by the contrasting fabrics. It looks clever but not intimidating. Thanks for the chance!

I love all the patterns but one that really caught my eye is Sugar - love the tulip and the Flower Sugar fabrics. I must confess that I couldn't wait for the giveaway and I ordered my own copy already.

Sigi G said...

My absolute favorite is 'Scrap Jars' and then 'Lovely'. The Dresden Quilt is also so beautiful, but a bit too ambitious for me at the moment, I think. You have brought out a wonderful book, congratulations!

Joyce Carter said...

Thank you so much Amber for the chance to win this awesome book. I loved all the quilts, but Sugar is my favorite.

Pick a favorite? I mean is that even possible? Okay I guess I could narrow it down to at least two.. Lovely and Pretty petals make my heart melt!

Kristy said...

Lisa S. said...

I think my favorite project is Growing Up. Such a great quilt!

Lisa S. said...

I think my favorite project is Growing Up. Such a great quilt!

I love your book. My favorite is the quilt on the cover. But there are a few more I like also. (my computer is freezing up on pictures right now so can't get correct names.) Very nice book!

Afton Warrick said...

Scrap jars is one of those quilts where I think, "That's brilliant. Wish I'd thought of that!"

Vicky P said...

Love the tour and love the book. Hard to choose a favorite but Vintage Vibe is probably what I would do first.

Lindsey said...

I love dashing! So many beautiful quilts! I'm new to quilting so a book like yours would be awesome for me..

Karen said...

Congratulations on a beautiful book! All the quilts are beautiful, if I had to choose one I would pick "Big Baby". I love star quilts and I really like how easy it would be to piece. I know it would become a go to quilt for a quick but pretty baby quilt.

Judy S in New Hampshire said...

I LOVE your book! Pick only one quilt? Not possible! This is the first book I've seen in a very long time that I could easily make every quilt. But I can't get my choice lower than three...Skipper, Scrap Jars, and Pretty Petals. I'd love to win!

giddy99 said...

I like Growing up the best!

Cathy Wilson said...

I like them all but if forced to make a choice, it would be Twirl. Wonderful book, would love to win!

Barbara Lightfoot said...

I think Skipper is my favorite. It is screaming to be a scrappy quilt on my sofa!

Patricia said...

I can't decide. I really like Pretty Petals and Sugar.
Thanks for the give away, hope I win!

Shelly said...

Your book is so full of a well rounded variety of beautiful quilts. I still love the Dresden plate one for sure.

Margaret said...

I love the scrap jar quilt. I love using up scraps and I like to fussy cut so the best of both worlds in that one.

Meri said...

I love them all! But I guess Scrap Jars is a favorite...thanks for a chance to win your awesome book!

Jennifer said...

Well, it is difficult to narrow it down, but I love Skipper and Big Baby. Thanks for the chance.

Scorpie said...

I think that my favorite must be the cover picture. I love the colors and can't wait to buy the fabric and make it. Thanks for the offer of the book but I already bought it and I love it.

Conniebee said...

Sugar sweet is the one for me!!! Beautiful work and beautiful book! Congratulations!

Karen Dobbs said...

WHAT?! I have to pick just one?! I like all of them, but I'd probably choose Big Baby. It just looks happy. Wonderful book!

Donna W said...

Congratulations on your new book. The quilts are all beautiful, but I am in love with "Playing Favorites". Looks like I need another book. Thanks

cllcraft said...

Your book is fabulous! All of the patterns are ones that I'd love to make, but my favorite is Scrap Jars.

Being a Libra, making decisions isn't my strong point - it was very hard but I came down to Twirl and both Sugar quilts. Thank you for the opportunity to win a great book.
