A little background on this project.
Tim Holtz (you know who that is, right?) teaches a few different classes when he travels from state to state, and one of those is Patchwork Pandemonium. My mom and I got word that Tim would be returning to Texas in August to teach at a store in Plano, and we were planning on signing up for his patchwork class. I would LOVE to take a class with Tim (who wouldn't?), and I am also in great need of a photo with Mario (that was unable to occur the last time we met) :)
Get this, Tim wrote on his blog that he would be retiring the patchwork class. I was so sad! Of course I'll be able to take another class, but still...that thing was cool!
After looking at photos of a few different versions of the project, I figured out the basic measurements, and realized that is was probably something that I could do myself. I emailed Tim, and he was generous enough to give me permission to recreate the project and post it on my blog! What a nice guy :)
This is what I came up with :)
I used SO many of the techniques that I know, and just about every distressing tool and medium that I own. I am so pleased with how it turned out.
