Denyse Schmidt for Spotlight and Joanne's

Like most modern quilters, I love Denyse Schmidt fabrics. I have quite a collection of Hope Valley, and a few nice pieces of Katie Jump Rope. I am also a lover of her Greenfield Hill collection, which was darker in tone and not as well liked amongst her fans.

Denyse's second range of fabrics designed for Spotlight in Australia and Joanne's in the US has just come to my local spotlight, and I was lucky enough to score a half metre piece of each.

I think my favourite is the green and blue acorn, far right in the above photo. They are all really usable prints, easy to mix in with the rest of the stash. And it is so nice to be able to purchase locally some fabric from a modern designer.

I also bought some of her first range for Spotlight and Joanne's, Picnic and Fairgrounds. I've made some purses and bags with it, and used some in an as yet unfinished Stacked Coins quilt. Lovely stash builder!
