|Denyse Schmidt's new line Florence for Free Spirit Fabrics|
Who is ready for the DS Challenge??? This challenge is open to all members of the Houston Modern Quilt Guild so get your name on the Flickr list! Contact Deirdre for more info.
And for fans of Denyse Schmidt not in the HMQG, we have a giveaway for you too! We have set aside one fat eighth bundle of Florence for the person with the most creative idea! Post your comment describing your idea and we'll pick the best one and mail you the bundle. You must commit to follow the same rules as the HMQG listed below.
Rules:1. Your project must use Denyse Schmidt fabric from the Florence line provided by DS. You can of course swap among the group if anyone wants to change up the fabrics in their Fat Eighth bundle.
2. Quilt Shop Quality Solids can be supplemented as needed on the quilt top or as backing/lining etcetera but the work’s focus needs to be the new collection.
3. While there are no minimum or maximum size requirements, use your judgment to make sure that you are using a good portion of the fabric that was included in the bundle.
4. If you took one of the bundles you must post a photo of the finished item in the Denyse Schmidt Florence Challenge Flickr group by July 15th and be willing to loan it to Denyse Schmidt or Free Spirit for photos.
