Fall Quilt Market 2010 – Freespirit – Denyse Schmidt

I’m even more excited for Denyse Schmidt‘s new collection, Greenfield Hill, now that I’ve seen it up close. Her geometric prints are always so perfectly simple and versatile and sweet. And the 3-Dness of the big floral print (the topmost print in the bottom photo) is really gorgeous. Above are the voiles, which you can [...]

What is UP with all the Copying Lately?

Tula Pink copied by unknown Wal-Mart supplier Very Denyse-Schmidt-Flea-Market-Fancy-looking but not Denyse-Schmidt-sanctioned tights at Anthropologie, via Film in the Fridge This Kokka print is extremely derivative of a Helen Dardik design. And, I just happen to be working on a post about low-quality ripoffs of Kokka prints. There are always more players in the supply [...]

Preview: Greenfield Hill by Denyse Schmidt

Denyse Schmidt has posted previews of her Fall 2010 collection, Greenfield Hill, on her website (hop over here to see the other two colorways). I love her description: Inspired by Ladies’ League luncheons and Preservation Society socials, Greenfield Hill evokes afternoon teas, polite gossip, the faded wallpaper in Mrs. So-and-so’s drawing room, the slightly musty [...]

Show Us Your Stash: Collection Edition

I just love it when they all coordinate, don’t you? A stack of Rosalie Quinlan‘s Grandmother’s Flower Garden, from Penelope Waits (blogged here). A stack of Denyse Schmidt’s Katie Jump Rope from Badlands Quilts‘ blog, destined to become a Single Girl quilt. (Total parenthetical: I’ve wanted to make one of those for ages.) A nicely [...]

Fall Quilt Market 2009: Vintage Shopping (and Denyse Schmidt)!

While we’re on the subject of vintage today, here are shots from vintage textile dealer A.T. Roches out of Canton, Texas (east of Dallas). Note the insane array of vintage hankies, cocktail napkins, and gift wrap along with the fabric. I did some damage here and at Mary Koval Antique Quilts (but we’ve got an [...]

Bring Back Flea Market Fancy!

There’s a campaign afoot to persuade FreeSpirit and Denyse Schmidt to re-print Denyse’s first line, Flea Market Fancy. There are so many new sewists who discovered the collection after it was out of print, and speaking for myself, there are a few prints that I’d like to get my hands on. Folks are paying a [...]

Preview: Denyse Schmidt’s Hope Valley

Hooray! As hinted at earlier this year, Denyse Schmidt‘s upcoming collection for FreeSpirit, Hope Valley, is inspired by homesteading, fresh starts, and pioneering. I just love everything about this collection: the colors, the vintage feel, the sweet, happy florals and simple small-scale coordinates. The images above from Denyse give you a good idea of the [...]

Denyse Schmidt News

I was wondering if Denyse Schmidt was going to have a new fabric collection at Quilt Market in Pittsburgh next week, since (if I remember correctly) her last two collections were unveiled at spring markets. The bad news is, no new collection yet, but the good news is there IS going to be one this [...]
