A Sewn Vintage Lifestyle + Giveaway Closed

Verna Mosquera of The Vintage Spool‘s style is nothing short of inspiring. We drool over her fabric collections and admire her timeless appliqué quilt patterns. We are thrilled to have her on the blog today to chat about her first book, A Sewn Vintage Lifestyle, which celebrates her romantic and vintage inspired aesthetic. Keep reading for a closer look at her book and a giveaway!

As I prepare for the release of my first book A Sewn Vintage Lifestyle, it seemed fitting to share a bit about the process and a few things I’ve learned along the way. In 2007 at the International Quilt Market in Houston I had just released my first fabric collection, Sweet Escape for FreeSpirit Fabrics and was approached by F+W Media about writing a book. My company was very young and so were my two sons, so I kept her information and put the book idea on the back burner. A few years later, it all fell into place! Timing is everything, and it is important to wait for a time that is right for you.

The book features 20 charming, useful and beautifully sewn projects for the home that reflect my vintage and romantic inspired aesthetic. The projects range from quilts, (both patchwork and appliqué) to embroidery and simple sewn projects. The task was rather daunting, but I realized it must be how some people feel when they look at one of my appliqué quilts and don’t know where to begin. I decided to take my own advice I often give my students and that was to take it one step at a time.

Writing A Sewn Vintage Lifestyle has been one of the coolest things I have done in my creative career and in the process I have learned a few things. I have learned to take time to smell the roses. Stop, catch your breath, feel good about what you have accomplished. Spend time with those most important to you and spend time doing what you most enjoy.

I feel incredibly blessed to work in a field that I have a tremendous passion for while I raise my two children. A Sewn Vintage Lifestyle is a compilation of all that I have learned along my creative path. It has been quite a journey. My hope is that it will inspire others to create. I am proud and honored to share it.

For a chance to win one of THREE copies of A Sewn Vintage Lifestyle, comment below letting us know how you add a touch of vintage to your life. A winner will be chosen on July 11, 2013. Good luck!

I love all they taught me, and having some of their treasures continue to inspire me! Some may think that I'm talking about jewelry or furniture, but I'm not! I'm talking about an old colander (reminds me of time with my grandmother in her kitchen), a large metal tea kettle (reminds me of my great-grandmother and how everyone loved to visit her home), and all kinds of various treasures from my Mom (old letters, favorite pictures). They all remind me of simpler times and inspire me to follow their examples!

    I've already made myself a 1913 suit.
