I am at Quilt Market in Pittsburgh right now, working in the Sizzix booth. I’ve scheduled this post while I am away to share a couple of fun projects that I made for the Tim Holtz, Eclectic Elements booth for Coats. Hopefully I will be able to snap a couple of pictures with my phone to share with you later too. I love working with Tim Holtz prints. They are always unique, fun and inspirational. I was inspired by his basket weave print to make this pieced basket pillow cover. I had fun fussy cutting the numbers print. The musical notes make a terrific (though highly directional!) background. I am thrilled that this collection includes a floral as well which was needed to pull off the basket design!
I handstitched along the printed route lines and added little “x” marks at the destinations for some added interest and texture.
It’s always fun to make a few projects for the Coats booth and hope to have the chance to do it again next time! I can’t wait to actually visit the booth. Hopefully I will be doing that as you are reading my post!
