Did you miss out on Denyse Schmidt’s range “Flea Market Fancy”? Have you seen some of the crazy prices it’s selling for online? Would you like to see a reprint so you can get your mitts on some? Well get on over to Sew Take a Hike and sign the “petition”. Link to petition.


I admit I love the idea of the cheater print and Denyse just does it so well in her new County Fair range. Pink Chalk Studio has designed a quilt using the cheater and offers it as a free download. Link. I’ve spied in her flickr pages how she bastes the 3 layers together. Link.

If you head on over to her store she has kits available too.

Using an improvisational patchwork technique, Denyse created this one-of-a-kind heirloom for her friend Wendy. Wendy had asked Denyse to use her childhood dresses that had been hand-sewn by her grandmother.
