Earlier this week I ventured out to my local Spotlight Store (I gather it's much like an US version of a Joann's Store), in search of maybe finding some of the more recently released Denyse Schmidt fabrics.
I did find some DS fabric, but nothing that needed to come home with me. As I made my way out of the store the section of gingham fabric caught my eye ~ 100% cotton, woven fabric in an array of colors that immediately set my head in a spin! Why had I not seen these before?
The team member at the cutting counter eyed me with curiosity even asking what I had in mind. Huh? A quilt, of course!
Since then I have enjoyed the fabric play, auditioning prints, retiring some and calling upon my vintage sheet fabric collection for dainty floral prints that work well with gingham.
I had such a wonderful time creating the first quilt top that a second followed soon after!
We'll call this the gingham phase, and I hope you'll bear with me as I ride out this creative whim.
I am busy working on completing the second quilt. Basting, quilting and binding are yet to commence. More pictures soon.
