Slow down, take a breath, and enjoy the countryside, where life takes on a peaceful more gentle pace. Quilting is one of those things, along with knitting and taffy pulling, that seems like it should be reserved for older women from pioneer days. Contrary to this stereotype, Denyse Schmidt of Denyse Schmidt Quilts is a modern woman born and raised in central Massachusetts who simply has a passion (and a talent) for patchwork.
She was raised in a family where hand-making things was normal: her father and mother made furniture and clothes in their spare time, and while they never made a career out of their talents, Denyse was inspired to take her capacity for creation a bit further.
After studying graphic design and working in a myriad of industries, Denyse finally “patched together” her experiences to create her very own patchwork quilt company, and it’s anything but old-fashioned.
