Back Cover Information

With the need to "use it up and make it do" during the Great Depression, quilting exploded in popularity. New patterns were abundant as creativity flourished. Newspapers were a popular source of patterns, and thrifty quilters clipped and saved patterns in shoeboxes and scrapbooks. Quilt designer Nancy Mahoney was lucky enough to find such a scrapbook, and she shares her favorite patterns—along with simplified sewing techniques—in this rare collection.

  • Choose from 11 scrappy quilt patterns including "Chinese Checkers", "Patriotic Star", and "Treasure Chest"
  • Capture the cheerful colors reminiscent of the period with designs that feature '30s reproduction fabrics
  • Get that vintage look in less time with quick cutting and piecing methods

About the Author

Author, teacher, fabric designer, and award-winning quiltmaker, Nancy Mahoney has enjoyed making quilts for more than 20 years. An impressive range of her beautiful quilts have been featured in many books and national quilt magazines. Quilt Revival is Nancy's sixth book with Martingale & Company. Her other best-selling books include Patchwork Showcase (2004), Basket Bonanza (2005), and Quilt Book Bonanza: 50 Paper-Pieced Designs (2005). Almost entirely self-taught, Nancy continues to explore new ways to combine traditional blocks and updated techniques to create quilts that are easy to make. Nancy lives in Pal Coast, Florida, with her life partner of 30 years, Tom, and their umbrella cockatoo, Prince.
