Quilt Commitments: Denyse Schmidt Fabrics
The quiltspiration has paid off. I've purchased eight different fabrics designed by Denyse Schmidt in various shades of blue, yellow, and red. I was thrilled to see her spring collaboration with Joann Fabrics resulting in the gorgeous DS Quilts line of modern, vintage-inspired, eye-popping, summer-affirming stripes, dots, blossoms, and squiggles. (Read more about the fabrics here or here.)
I'm still working out the details of my quilt pattern, but I think it will be similar to the one I've sketched above. Mostly stripes, free-form, similar heights but varying widths, a simple back with one stripe of detail, machine-quilted but the binding will be hand-stitched. Hooray! I've washed, ironed, and carefully folded the fabrics and now I'm ready for the big quilter's commitment: the cutting.
Tonight I'm scooting off with friends for a true 4th of July American tradition--barbecue and fireworks. For my friends stateside, I hope you are enjoying the same. xoxo, k.
