Denyse Schmidt...a modern take on the classic quilt
I am a huge fan of Denyse Schmidt. A former graphic designer and graduate of Rhode Island School of Design, Denyse has been sewing since she was a young girl. Her reinterpretions of traditional Amish designs produce modern functional quilts that are fresh and offbeat. With quirky names like "Drunk Love in a Log Cabin," "There Goes the Neighborhood," and "What a Bunch of Squares," they are characterized by simple graphics, rich color, and quality workmanship. Her couture and custom quilts, in production since 1996, are pieced to order in her studio and hand-quilted by Amish women in Minnesota.
