Denyse Schmidt Modernized D9P

In 2015 I'm going to do a better job about taking good pictures of my quilts. And blogging about them. For real this time. I promise. So...without further ado, here is my amazing (and finished!) modernized D9P made with Denyse Schmidt charms from a swap I participated in ages ago.

I. Love. This. Quilt. And for the first time ever, I'm keeping it for myself. Back in 2011, I participated in a few rounds of a Denyse Schmidt charm swap over on Flickr. (Of course I had several spots in each round.) I decided I finally needed to start doing something with them, so I pulled out some of the blue, green, gray, and gold charms to make a modernized D9P using Kristy Daum's tutorial.

For the backing, I scored a piece of clearance Fancy Free Allover Floral at Joann's (love, love, love that Joann's carries Denyse Schmidt and other designer fabric) as well as a DS Quilts remnant that I used for the binding. Except for the two gold pieces on the back and the Kona white on the front, the quilt is all Denyse Schmidt fabrics.
