Shelburne Falls W.i.P.


 Denyse Schmidt's Shelburne Falls is possibly my favorite of her fabric lines. I had a fat eighth bundle and I was able to eek out 20 fourteen inch blocks by adding in a few pieces from her other collections. 


Even though this is a pretty basic block, I appreciated this tutorial. She gives cutting measurements and fabric needs for varying size quilts.


I'd like to make this quilt a little larger by adding a border but I'm not sure yet which fabric I'll use. This is for my hubby and I need to make sure those white socks get covered!



Have a lovely week! 
Deborah xx

Gorgeous Deborah! Shelburne Falls is my favorite of DS too. I am participating in the DS charm swap and I will be getting 224 5' charms plus a charm pack of SFalls from DS quilts. No idea what I will make yet - but I love this quilt. can't wait to see this finished!
Have fun

Very nice. I like the simple, old fashioned squares but the fabrics give it an updated look.

Curly Anna Quilts said...

Very nice quilt! The fabric works so well with the pattern. You may want to look at Seven Wonders by Free Spirit. There were at least two that would work nicely for a border.

Yet another lovely quilt Deborah! I love the simplicity of the scrappy-patched quilt immersed in colourful and beautiful fabrics. "An oldie but a goodie" design.....with a modern twist! 'Tis serendipitous!!

You have managed to make those fat eighths go a long way. It will be interesting to see what choice you make for your border.
