WIP 2 – Turning Twenty with Succlents

At QuiltCon, I met the lovely and talented Heather Givens from Crimson Tate, a brick and Mortar store in Indianapolis, IN. Heather designed her first line of fabrics for Windam Fabrics, called succlents.

When I saw this line I was incredibly, “wowed,” which takes a lot. I fell in love with this line of fabrics because it is so original and unique. In over 20 years of fabric shopping, I have never seen cacti on fabric, and used in such cute and playful designs.

I couldn’t wait to break my fabric diet and order some. And over the weekend this box showed up at our door.


I was so excited to open it. I had been thinking and talking with my quilting friends about this line, and what might be a good pattern to really show it off.

But first…


I opened the package, and I found all this beautiful fabric in a great plastic case with these adorable pins.



Some close-ups, really do the fabric justice.


And I am not a button person, but these did crack me up. I will use them in my quilting studio.



So I will be washing these fabrics. Cutting into them very soon. And can’t wait to make a Turning Twenty with it.


Happy Quilting!!
