Quilt Market 2015 - Tim Holtz Eclectic Elements Fabric Projects

Hello friends!!! I LOVE to sew, it really sings to my soul. My first memories of sewing are sitting on my mothers lap making a hot pink ice skating dress when I was only 4 years old. I'm sure that my mother just let me push the petal but in my 4 year old eyes I made that little dress and I have been sewing ever since. 

Here is the Tim Holtz Eclectic Elements booth at Spring Quilt Market hosted in Minneapolis. Tim won "Best New Exhibitor". 
I love everything about it…from the vintage settee covered in the new Wallflower fabric to all the lovely projects everyone made. 
 For a full recap of the show head over to Tim and Paula's blog.

Here's the samples I made with the new Tim Holtz Eclectic Elements Wallflower collection. I can't even tell you how excited and honored I was to make the quilt for the booth. Thank you Tim!!

"Artful Fragments"
The quilt was pieced with over 620 pieces. The pattern for the quilt will be on the Coats and Clark website soon.

Love the way the fabrics go together. 

"Poufs"

"The Travel Bag" has to be one of my favorite projects other then the quilt. 
I really want  to make one for myself. 


"Pin Cushions"

"Zipper pouch"

"Aviary Pillow"
Love how the stitching around the bird makes him stand out.

The beauty of Eclectic Elements is how well the fabrics coordinate together. I know you will enjoy using them for your next sewing project. 

Thanks for stopping in and I hope you have a great weekend.

  9. Hello Richele,
    I have to say being an X quilter myself I can appreciate the work that has gone into making the quilt, It looks amazing, a fabulous design that suits the design of the material. You should be very proud, it is tangible and tactile and will certainly hold the test of time for many many years.The booth looks fabulous.
