Maker Valley + Lella Boutique Week

This past week, I got a chance to be a guest designer over at Maker Valley. Maker Valley is a Utah-based design house that specializes in craft-themed apparel and accessories. Throughout the week, Maker Valley posted a series of tee shirt designs featuring my artwork. At the end of the week, those designs were put to a vote--with the winning design(s) being produced/sold on Maker Valley. Check out the winning designs below and get yours preordered now! Get 20% off when you preorder before 4/4/18 using promo code LELLA20 at checkout. (Estimated ship date is 4/23/18.) 
The first design is my Scrappy Sunflowers quilt block in muted colors on a Heather grey tri-blend tee--available in crewneck or v-neck.

The second design features my favorite quilting motto, "When life is scrappy, make a quilt," hand-lettered by Dave at Stately Type. It's printed on a navy cotton/poly tee, also available in crewneck or v-neck. (Unisex sizing.) I can't wait to get my hands on these tees!

We also designed a pretty little collection of enamel pins featuring my signature motifs. Since my fabric collections tend to be floral-centric, we started out with a "Handpicked" floral design in a soft aqua blue. The second is based on my Social Butterfly quilt block. The third is based on my Scrappy Sunflowers quilt block.

Holly (at Maker Valley) and I are just thrilled with how these all turned out and we know you will love them too. Preorder now to reserve your tees and pins--and be sure to take advantage of the 20% discount before it ends. (Use promo code LELLA20 at Maker Valley by the end of 4/3/18.)
