Cutting Denyse

Denyse Schmidt is a very popular fabric, quilt designer and author of quilting and children's books. She comes from a background of sewing and graphic design. I read on the Free Spirit fabric designer page that she has her couture quilts handmade by Amish women. 

It is easy to collect her fabrics and hoarde them away however, today I spent most of my time cutting up my DS fabrics.

DS Charm Swap

When this was run by That Moxie Girl, last time it was only open to US residents. This one was only open for a couple of days before it filled but thankfully I got in with a pledge of 2 sets of charm squares. 
Inserting a brand new blade (joy of joys) into my rotary cutter,  I cut up 112x5" charms. 

Katie Jump Kites
This project has been on hold for about a month but I finally cut up my recent 'green' arrivals.
Then I cut into my Kona Ash to make 112x 6.5"x3.5" rectangles.

So now the quilt is ready to be sewn up and I am excited.


  1. I love anything DS! I'm excited to see what you do with it!

  2. Sounds very interesting! I'll be looking out the progress posts! =D

  3. I'm also excited. I like those sneak peaks :-)
