New Denyse Schmidt at Jo-Ann
I finally found something worthy of the very last of my christmas money—the new DS Quilts Collection! I'm glad now that I managed to save it for a rainy day as it's been burning a whole in my pocket and I just couldn't pass these ones up, especially since I am still lamenting the fact that I was not quick enough to get my hands on any of her Flea Market Fancy line (that are now going for $40/fat quarter, geez louise!). I had just enough to get a 1/4 yard of my favorite ones although there are a few more pattern/colorways to the complete collection available at Jo-Ann.
The patterns and colors remind me of those found in American farmhouse kitchens from the 30's to 50's so I want to use them for a vintage style apron with trim or perhaps an oven mit, definitely as edging along a flour sack dishtowel. I can also picture them mixed with lots of calicoes and scrap fabric for a very vintage looking quilt although that idea will have to wait since I have
Maybe next year I will save up my christmas money for an extra pair of hands, ya? In the meantime, I've already put a little birthday cash aside for AMH's new Loulouthi line due out sometime in May...looks brilliant. What can I say, I have a serious addiction going on here and need a hit every now and then!
