Let me present the beautiful and lovely Brooke Starnes. A long time customer of the store and a dear friend who agreed to not only help sew projects made from Succulents but agreed to have her entire family involved. Here she is with the whole gang. I LOVE THEM ALL!!!
Take it away Brookie:
Hi, gang! SUCCULENTS! This fabric is tops and the colors are perfect much like the lady who designed it. I met Heather a few years ago when she opened Crimson Tate, the best quilt shop in the history of quilt shops. I was sitting in the shop just a couple of weeks after it had opened, cutting fabric and chatting with Heather. She told me, “the shop is great but what I really want to do is design the fabric.” And here we are! Dreams coming true, tears of joy being shed, and aprons with Heather’s fabric being made…
And would you check out these great dresses sewn by Crimson Tate friend Kathy Crose? How perfect is Succulents for this summer maxi dress by Heidi + Finn? Simple and sweet. Annie’s dress is made with Personal Garden in teal and Jude’s is Personal Garden in blue. Perfect perfect. Those girls happen to be my daughters and were thrilled to be wearing some of Heather’s fabric. They are huge fans. Annie is an honorary Crimson Tate employee, after all.

I love what you did with her fabics. Such great prints!
Brooke, that apron is so cool and functional too. Gotta have one for my mini-garden/green thumb duties:) I love all the Succulents prints..have always been a warm color girl so the Terra Cotta really drew me in. I’ve got some little girl nieces to sew for..thanks for sharing your daughters in their Succulents dresses. I’d love to meet Heather in her shop one day too:)
Great apron, and the girls dresses are beautiful. I love the length.
