denyse schmidt "county fair"
These are the first few fabrics that have arrived from Denyse Schmidt's new soft canvas fabrics "County Fair" for Free Spirit Quilting. Several of the designs are taken from her first fabric collection "Flea Market Fancy" and for this new collection she reworked the colorways.
The "Patchwork Promenade" print is new and I think it is just fabulous! It is a so-called "cheater print" with 6 totally different "pieced" 18"(45 cm) square blocks. The individual blocks can be used for smaller projects like cushion covers or placemats and with just a few meters of this fabric you could easily create your own quilt by quilting around the block sections. The fabric is 54", 135 cm wide and can be used for quilting, clothing and also upholstery. The fabric can be found by VOLKSFADEN here.
