Lil' Red - a softie story-
Log Cabin Quilt Series Part 1

Succulence Blog Tour



Hi Everyone!

It's my stop on the Succulence Blog Tour today.

First of all thank you Bonnie for letting me take part in this. I always love doing these. :)


 Art Gallery Fabrics are always so soft and I love sewing on them.

I used mostly prints from the Succulence "Light of Day" palette


I love the saturated but soft/earthy tones with a little bit of sparkle from the metallic cacti print


The other palette Early Winter is just as beautiful.

It was very hard to choose which prints I wanted to use in my project and luckily I had a half yard of the terrarium print already so I could make a little quilt.

My project was a baby quilt which unfortunately I didn't get quilted in time but the top is complete.

The quilt is made entirely half square triangles and squares which meant a lot of chain piecing but a pretty quick quilt top.
It's a real simple design but I'll do a post/tutorial of sorts once I get it quilted. :)

My quilt holding assistants were my small children so please excuse the lopsided pictures. It didn't help that it was so windy when I was taking the photos either.


I used a print from Katarina's Wonderland collection for the background (I have a weird thing with plain backgrounds),
and AGF Pure Elements in Festival Fuchsia and Mirage Blue.
I cannot wait to get this quilted!!

Thank you so much for stopping by!

Here is the rest of the schedule. Please visit everyone the projects are wonderful!

Beautiful top! And beautiful pictures :) (I think your assistants did a great job)
I am the same. I do not like using plain backgrounds. I like the effect of adding a little texture/depth to the background :)

bonnie christine

the coordinates you picked are perfect! so in love with the finished top - and your process shots! now let your littles wrap up in it. :)


So pretty! I would love to make a quilt one day. Going to add that to my to do list.
