Denyse Schmidt: Modern Quilts, Traditional Inspiration.
Denyse pays homage to the quilters and quilts that came before her and inspired her to start DSQ over fifteen years ago. In this beautiful hardcover book, she reinterprets 20 of her favorite traditional quilt patterns for the home crafter. Each pattern is accompanied by a lively overview of its history, exquisite full-page photographs, and illustrated instructions. For the first time, Denyse shares her insights on this timeless art form, and her unique gift for making the old seem utterly new.
Killing me softly!
