I like to see all my fabric stacks as potential quilts, though of course they can’t all become quilts. Too many stacks, and definitely not enough time these days! I’m hoping that these piles will become quilts though.
The first is a stack of all my favorite prints from several of Denyse Schmidt’s lines. There’s lots of Hope Valley and Chicopee, along with a bit of her original Flea Market Fancy, a few prints from Shelburne Falls, and a couple from Florence. I love that these lines play so nicely together, and this quilt is one I’ve had in mind for some time.
I’m going quite simple on this one, and am hoping to make it a king sized quilt for our bed. We shall see. I often write that I plan on making a large quilt, get halfway done, and decide to turn it into a nice sized throw. Hopefully I’ll have better luck this time.
And the next stack? A bundle I pulled together for the Fat Quarter Shop. I was pleased to be asked, though was surprised to find how challenging it was to select fabrics from lines that hadn’t yet been released (I selected them months ago from images online).
Since I knew this bundle would be released at this time, I selected colors that read ‘icy winter’ to me, figuring that I’d probably put this bundle to use in December/January. Of course, I just received my bundle in the mail and quite love it, so I may put it to use before then! You can find this bundle here.
