The Penny Quilt - Five and Ten Version

 A few weeks ago, the nice people at Windham Fabrics were nice enough to send me a bundle of Denyse Schmidt's new Five and Ten collection that will be out this summer. I have been drooling over this collection ever since Denyse started showing it off on Instagram and knew I wanted to make a version of the Penny Quilt Pattern with it.

This collection is all of the things Denyse does best - it's vintage but also modern and it's bold but also muted. There are florals, plaids, and strips. So much goodness.

It was a perfect fit for Penny - actually, I think this pattern would work exceptionally well with any of her collections and I am wishing I had enough of her older Chicopee collection to make another version.

One thing that always interests me about a new pattern is how it will look in different fabrics - it's so interesting how fabric choice can make a pattern look completely different!

I am super excited for this collection to be release and will definitely be picking up some yardage - the plaids in particular would be perfect for a backing fabric.

  1. Wondering if you can add which fabric from her collection you used for A,B,C and D. Plus the fabric for the backing and the binding. Thanks

    1. Let's see - this collection is only 19 prints and the pattern calls for 21 plus a Fabric D, so I used two of them twice but let me see if I can make a list:
      Fabric A
      Wafer plaid in pink
      Ding dong in orange
      Candy stripe in cyan
      Pixy plaid in dark green
      Floral toss in ivory
      Dots in navy
      Itty bitty in red

      Fabric B
      Ding dong in navy
      Pixy plaid in blue
      Candy stripe in orange
      Dots in yellow
      Pop posey in blue
      Itty bitty in lime
      Wafer plaid in light blue

      Fabric C
      Pixy plaid in red
      Pixy plaid in dark green
      Floral toss in navy
      Itty bitty in red
      Wafer plaid in pink
      Ding dong in orange
      Candy stripe in yellow

      The sashing (Fabric D) is Kona Ash. The binding is a navy solid and the backing is an older Denyse Schmidt plaid - I think it was called windowpane or something like that.
