Ruched Happy Bag

I was really delighted to be asked to sew a couple of small projects for quilt market using Eclectic Elements by Tim Holtz for Coats. Since joining the Sizzix Design Team, I have really fallen for Tim’s style. I am always drawn to his dies.  So, I was pretty excited when I learned that he was coming out with a fabric line. Eclectic Elements debuted last quilt market but it’s back again this time! I made this bag using my Ruched Happy Bag pattern. They wanted to be able to hang it in the display so I added a wristlet strap. I love the way I was able to fussy cut “Times Square” to fit just right! Inside I used a red stripe print from the collection for a little pizzazz.

Tim Holtz Pillow

When thinking about how Tim’s fabric would work in traditional patchwork, the Courthouse Steps block came to mind immediately. This pillow cover uses some teeny tiny piecing but I love the effect.

I’ve been able to find some of the Eclectic Elements line at my local JoAnn and the Fat Quarter Shop has it all in stock.  I love the texty prints–big surprise right?
