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!!

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. :)

Denise

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