Home is Where the Heart is Frame

One of the projects in the Quilt Market booth a few weeks ago was an home decor piece using Tim's Eclectic Elements Fabric.  You can find the pattern on the Make it Coats Website.

1.  Go to the Make it Coats website.

2. Create a log in (it's very easy).

3. Click on "Discover" on the top tool bar.

4. Click Designer on the left hand tool bar, and then T (for Tim Holtz).  You will find a few projects using Tim's fabric (more to come in the near future too).

I purchased a wood frame at Michaels.  The frame came with a mat which I covered with Rose Parcel, one of the new Wallflower Fabrics.





The pattern from the Make it Coats website has the instructions, house/heart pieces, as well as the background with the sentiment (be sure to print that page on cardstock).
Follow the simple directions on the instruction sheet to create the house.  If you are not a sewer or don't have a machine, you do not have to stitch the edges of the house.
Once the house and heart are added to the cardstock, place in the frame and you are done!  Simple as that.



I'm giving away a nice fat stack of Eclectic Elements fabric so you can create this project (or another of your choosing).  It will include the new Wallflower Rose Parcel fabric!

Leave a comment and I will choose a winner on 
Sunday morning, June 7th.


now carry on,

  26. The way the inks are printed on fabric gives Tim's designs a soft but crisp appearance which is really appealing. This project was a great way to show them off but I don't know how you ever narrowed down the many possible choices for the house. It does have a bit of an Old English feel and is really spot-on. Perhaps your trip across the pond had something to do with it?

  28. Thanks for sharing - another amazing idea/project. Thank goodness I have just re-arranged it so my sewing machine is set up on a small table, easy access (no more pulling it out each time!) would love to use it with some TH designs.
