Eclectic Elements Fabric!!

Did you here the BIG NEWS? Tim Holtz has fabric! 
The collection is called Eclectic Elements, 100% cotton perfection! 
You can read the announcement on Tim's blog.

I can't even begin to tell you how excited I am about this fabric line!! But I'll try! It all started when I received an email from my friend Paula Cheney just a few weeks ago. 

The email read...
I know this is a stupid question...but richele do you sew?

Not stupid I actually used to teach quilting classes...why???

The next thing you know we are on the phone coordinating and planing... it was going to be a little tricky because I was leaving in a few days for a 10 day vacation in Oregon to visit family. 

The package arrived in Oregon a few days after me.


The feel and weight of the fabric is amazing and it's just like the paper we have loved for quite some time!

The next email to Paula...
Oh my! These are beautiful! I was trying to pick my favorite but I can't. I love them all! I'll get you some pics as I start to sew.

 So I started cutting.....and cutting....and cutting...

...and I sewing ...and sewing ....and sewing...

Next email to Paula
I'm off and running sewing!!! 
Loving the fabrics...THANK YOU Tim for always putting a smile on my face... I feel like a school girl all gitty with excitement.

Here is the first block!

I'm now quilting.....and quilting....and quilting...

I can't wait to show you my finished project! 
Actually I'm still working on it but you will see it soon!
You're going to LOVE it!
