Fold & Go Folio in Denyse Schmidt Fabrics!

I’m so excited for the Facebook giveaway we are doing this week! I get to partner with a designer I find very inspiring. We’re giving away one of my patterns, some of her fabric, and an Oliso Mini Iron! 


If you aren’t already familiar with her, I’d love to introduce you to the incredibly talented fabric and quilt designer Denyse Schmidt. Denyse, who teaches Improvisational Quilting classes from a historic building (once a fabric company – so perfect) in Bridgeport, Connecticut, is also a designer for Windham Fabrics! She shares my love of all things vintage, and her fabrics (including very useful panels) are so inspiring and useful for multiple project types. 

When I saw her vintage inspired graphic prints included in her Patchwork Panel 2, I knew they would be ideal for my Fold & Go Folio pattern. Her designs are so versatile and scale perfectly for the project.

I’ve always been drawn to Denyse’s bold, richly colored quilts. She draws on her graphic design background for her fabrics and quilt patterns, creating a unique blend of clean lines and vintage vibes. Denyse brings an artistic, retro vision to everything she creates!

My mom, Donna, and I had so much fun choosing prints from Denyse’s Patchwork Panel 2 for these colorful Fold and Go Folios! The three yard panel features so many lovely, vintage-inspired prints that you can make coordinated Folios for everyone. Make a coordinating set in different sizes for travel or notions organization, or a bunch of the same size so your guild friends can match. 


With this prize, and use your Oliso Mini Project Iron to create lots of Fold and Go Folios – for gifts or for yourself – from the 14 prints on just one Patchwork Panel 2!

Mixing and matching the prints in the panel lets you create a one-of-a-kind project. We chose four of the prints and created two large Fold and Go Folios – one for jewelry, one for sewing.

See the Folios we made in the video above. The pattern includes a small size, too – with all the fabric from Denyse, you can make a matching set! It’s the perfect gift for a quilt guild holiday exchange!
