Denyse Schmidt Pure Improv

In August I went up to Maine with Peggy Anne to take a class with Denyse Schmidt at Alewives Fabrics in Nobleboro.  I loved it!  So much fun taking a traditional block and turning it into a wonky new modern design.  The Shoeman’s Puzzle Quilt is from her new book.

Beach Bag

I spent this rainy Saturday making a beach bag from the Screen Play pattern. This bag is made with Pet Screen.

Of course I could not make mine with Black screen like everyone else. Mine had to be ORANGE!!

I took this class at Quilters Common in Wakefield, MA. It’s really a wonderful shop. They have a little bit of everything! Thank you Marianne for a wonderful class.
