Way back earlier this year when I was designing and writing the Abigail Quilt, I needed a quick project and decided to go ahead and make a sample quilt. If you have been following me for a while you won't be surprised with my fabric selection - I decided to use a variety of Denyse Schmidt prints.
I am a huge fan of Denyse's work and have made lots of quilts using her prints:
For this quilt, I picked a variety of darker valued prints and then coordinated them each with a lighter valued print. The fabrics are from several different collections - I don't have all of Denyse's prints, but I think I have at least a couple of prints from each collection and they work so well together.
I used Designer Essential Solids in Natural for the background fabric - this has been my go to background fabric lately because it works with so many fabrics.
The backing is a Chicopee print that has been in my stash for ages.
And here is a photo of the black and white and DS versions together - it always blows me away to see how different a pattern can look!
If you would like to make your own version of the Abigail Quilt, you can pick up a copy in my shop.
