Denyse Schmidt at JoAnn Fabrics

First, thank you for all of the nice comments yesterday! The giveaway for 101 Patchwork Projects is still going on, so pop over here to enter if you haven't had a chance yet.

If you are a fabric junkie like me, then you know Denyse Schmidt has just released a new line at Jo-Ann Fabrics of all places! Seeing how Alaska stores always seem to get things late (or get left out of the fun completely) you can imagine how thrilled I was to find all of the prints yesterday. I showed some restraint and only got 15 of the prints instead of the 21 available. The quality is fantastic! Super exciting.


I'm really trying to use even little bits of new fabric as it comes in, so this morning I tried a new pattern with it-- the Keyka Lou inset zipper pouch.



There were quite a few pieces to cut, but once that was done it sewed up very quickly. The zipped opening does end up a bit small for my liking, but it's still a great pouch. Next I'll try the clutch to see if I like that size better.

Krista, (Hi, it's Rachael from the quilt guild meetings). Which Jo-Anns did you find these at? I've seen them on flickr -- exciting! Also, I'm looking forward to the next meeting. I went in March but the doors were locked :( (then again, I didn't RSVP)

fun! so glad you guys got the good stuff. ak shouldn't be left out. I'm heading out tonight to go find some, even though it's an hour drive, it'll still be worth it. :)

You are lucky. I called the 3 area JoAnns and they don't have any. They didn't even know what I was talking about! I love your pouch!

Sweet little pouch! I've got my U.S. connections working on a little stash of my own (that would be the other Krista). Hopefully her local shop gets it in! Glad to hear the quality is good.
