Shelburne Falls by Denyse Schmidt

I had my rotary cutter poised for a frenzy of fabric cutting when I realized that I haven't yet shown you these:
Shelburne Falls by Denyse Schmidt

"Inspired by the graceful twirling skirts and old fashioned courtliness of New England contra dancing ... Denyse has created a timeless collection embodying exuberance of spirit and small-town charm."

Shelburne Falls is a Free Spirit collection for independent fabric stores due for release in February 2013. It is offered in three colorways - Lilac, Maple and Willow - for a total of 30 quilting cotton prints.

I purchased my bundle of Shelburne Falls fat eighths at the DS Sample Sale. This week I have been busy planning and working with these fabrics to create a vintage style quilt - progress of which I hope to show you soon.


Shelburne Falls by Denyse Schmidt will be available - February 2013

  7. They do have a bit of a nostalgic look, especially when all together. Funny, they look a little more modern when separated by color way. Can't wait to see what you do with it!
