Busy, Busy

I've been running around like a crazy woman trying to get everything in order for back-to-school. I've also managed to make a few new items in the process. These items have all made it into the shops (see link in left hand column). Maaany more on the way!

Lilly Fabric Quilts by: By Tillie

Pink and Green Lilly Pulitzer fabric quilt by: By Tillie
Sometimes I come across a seller on etsy who deserves recognition. This seller definitely falls into that category. The shop is called: By Tillie(Click on Shop Title to visit). She sells the most beautiful Lilly Pulitzer fabric quilts. She started making the quilts when her daughter went away to college and wanted her dorm room decorated in Lilly (I can relate). Her daughter's friends soon took notice and additional orders started rolling in. 

While she clearly is an excellent seamstress, she is an engineer by profession and felt that her quilt designs looked a little structured. So her son, who has an artistic eye, came to her aid and now helps her by providing the quilt layout. Together, I think they do an amazing job.

She also makes baby quilts, even Lilly quilts suitable for boys!  In the past one would be hard pressed to design a baby boy's nursery in Lilly, but with one of By Tillie's quilts as the focal point, it's a done deal. These quilts are so beautiful, they make me want to have another baby!
