Hi everyone, Melody here! Today's Sizzix Quilting Inspiration is something a bit different. I'm sharing a quilt that was made for our Licensed Designer Tim Holtz by one of his fans. This quilt, beautifully made, features both Tim's line of patterned fabrics and his dies, so we knew we had to share it with you.
The lovely lady who made this thoughtful gift lives in Madrid, Spain. Her name is Carmen Arevalo, and she primarily used a combination of linen and Tim's cotton printed fabrics. She carefully needle-turned the shapes under - such attention to detail! She also hand quilted the piece for completion. It's unique, beautifully designed, and is sure to be treasured by Tim.
Here is a closer look at some different sections of the quilt...
It's evident, even if you don't read the quilt's label, that this quilt was made with much love!
Some of the dies Carmen used for the shapes on the quilt include:
Crescent Moon & Stars #658716
Old Jalopy #657185
Elegant Flourishes # 656639
Apothecary Bottles #658715
Vintage Telephone & Typewriter set #657836
Umbrella Man #657189
Sewing Edge 657829
Sewing Room #657186
Tattered Florals #656640
Wow - Carmen has a great collection of Tim's dies, and put them to beautiful use! We thank Tim for sharing this work of quilted art with us, and hope you've enjoyed this peek at his handmade treasure.
Until next time, happy quilting and crafting!
