Good Fortune in Chicopee

My Good Fortune Quilt with Denyse Schmidt’s Chicopee Fabric is finished!  I finished it a couple of weeks ago but have not found time to share this with everyone. This is the quilt top that I put together at the BMQG retreat in March.

I used Patricia Ritter’s Bauhaus pantograph for this quilt.  I know, I know, I should have just free motion quilted, but I am a big wimp and do not trust my skills for keeping things even and consistent.

I want more time to practice and play!  But, I am happy with what I have accomplished with this quilt.

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.
