DS Quilts Collection (Update with AU prints*)

To view larger (and to make the words legible), click here.


DS Quilts (Denyse Schmidt) quilting cotton collection available at Jo-Ann in the US starting in April 2011 and at Spotlight in AU and NZ in May 2011.


Prints are grouped into three colorways, Picnic, Fairgrounds and AU exclusives, based on what the fabrics were called on the receipts.

  • Sheridan 4y

    The Australian prints are not yet available. Patience, ladies!
  • Colleen 4y

    There are a whole bunch of sellers on etsy using this pic now! I saw at least 4 today!
  • LULUBLOOM :: lucia 4y

    Darn it! Thanks for letting me know. You'd think that people would take a picture of their fabric to show what they have for sale. It's not like this picture came from DS's website... I messaged one seller last week who was using my picture and they took it down.
  • Colleen 4y

    I messaged one person earlier:


    I just wanted to let you know that the last photo was made by someone else on Flickr, and you might want to ask her permission before using it!

    I appologize...I thought that was a swatch photo from Denyse Schmidt's website. I will remove it. Thank you for the info.

    And just to let you know, the photo you referenced from Flickr is not the same photo I was using."

    I wonder where it started? How frustrating!
  • LULUBLOOM :: lucia 4y

    You are sweet to have done that. Thank you. The photo she had/has up was the first version of the one I made, before we knew anything about the AU only prints. Once those were discovered, I replaced the graphic with the new one above. So, sometime when the old image was up, someone swiped it from here and posted it elsewhere. Probably on some message board or something. The seller that I messaged last week had never been on Flickr and said they got it from another site. Makes me wonder what's out there where it was posted. It would be a different story if they'd asked, you know?
  • Shannon Lowe 4y

    I have the US prints as well and would LOVE to trade for some Aussie prints!
  • amy 4y

    Lucia, I don't want to create extra work for you but I wondered if there were anyway to note on the swatches which JoAnn's ones were also available in Australia? Or perhaps better, which were JoAnn's only? I'll leave notes for now about the ones I know about.
  • LULUBLOOM :: lucia 4y

    Amy -- I can fix/update it, no problem. It might be a day or so. If possible I'd like to update the swatches for some of the AU prints since some of the current ones are not exactly right. I haven't seen clean shots of individual prints yet, but maybe I've missed them?
  • amy 4y

    LULUBLOOM :: lucia I unfortunately only own two australian online prints. We may need to put a call out for help?
  • Sheridan 4y

    I'm just uploading photos now into my photostream of the AU only fabrics.

    FYI, Australia got 24 prints - the ones we did not get are these ones:

    Gingham stripe red
    Zigzag lines
    Yellow modern texture
    Packed floral on blue
    Green block flower
    Green gingham
    Blue modern texture

    Hope that helps!
  • LULUBLOOM :: lucia 4y

    Thank you Sheridan! I'll try to get the graphic updated this weekend using your new photos. :)
  • Bek Brown 4y

    I have Half yard cut of daisy floral yellow and half yard cut of modern ditzy bluefor swap here:
    DS Quilts, Picnic and Fairgrounds for SWAP by Sew Cherry ;)
    . These are only available in Australia.
  • LULUBLOOM :: lucia 4y

    Ok, the graphic has been updated to show the US-only prints and I updated all of the images with better versions (from Joann.com and Sheridan/chaletgirl13). Thanks!
  • amy 4y

    Great update, Lucia. I know everyone appreciates it.
  • Sheridan 4y

    Clever! Well done, and thanks!
  • Elena @ Hot Pink Stitches 4y

    Any chance you'll be posting something similar for the new collection? I'd like to get my order in early this time so I don't miss out again. Thanks! This was a lifesaver!
  • LULUBLOOM :: lucia 4y

    Elena @ Hot Pink Stitches I hope to. I can't wait to see Sugar Creek. Sneak peeks are due in July.
  • Sandi 4y

    Thank you for putting this together!
  • Safieh Campbell 4y

    Thank you for doing this, it is super helpful! I'm looking forward to the next collection and your cheat sheet, thanks!
  • LittleCreatable 4y

    If anyone out there has 1 yard of the yellow plaid with pink flowers from the Australian release I am willing to pay!
