We hope you enjoyed our interview with Denyse Schmidt about Modern Quilts, Traditional Inspiration. (If you haven’t commented yet, you’re not entered to win a copy of the book, so hop on over!) She told us about her next fabric collection for Free Spirit, Chicopee, which will be shipping in the fall. Today we get to share a little peek at the fabric. The collection includes 26 quilting cottons and 6 fine-wale corduroys.

We wish we could get our hands on it today! How about you?
