COLLECTION: Franklin. Franklin, the newest fabric collection from Denyse Schmidt, is inspired by the magic of possibility and discovery found in the small-town libraries of her native New England. Combining the comfort of the familiar with the boldness and excitement of new ideas and places, Franklin transports and transcends with the timelessness of our best-loved classics. Nostalgic calicos, stripes, and geometrics are reminiscent of beautiful endpapers – and elegant, wise librarians. Perfect for quilting, Franklin also lends itself to all manner of creative inspiration – including flirty skirts, classic shirts, breezy totes and flights of imagination!
