Snapshots Quilt-Along

Have you heard about the Snapshots Quilt-Along?  If you follow along on Facebook you’ve seen the picture below a few weeks ago.  I pieced block one last night!  So fun!

Snapshots quilt

The fabrics are Daysail by Bonnie and Camille for Moda Fabrics.  Aren’t they adorable?  It’s my favorite color scheme so I especially love it!!  What I love even more, is it’s a quilt for a cause.  A free block pattern is released each month but a suggested $5 donation is encouraged.  All money raised goes directly to St Judes Childrens Hospital.  The Fat Quarter Shop and Moda Fabrics have committed to matching all donations up to $10,000!  So awesome!

The idea behind Snapshots is – each block represent things in our lives that we might take pictures of.

Here’s a link to the Fat Quarter Shops info on the Quilt-Along.

If you’re local (Salem/Keizer, Oregon) we’re going to do the quilt as a Block of the Month beginning in April.  Daysail will be arriving in the studio later this month and we will kit the quilt for those participating in the BOM. Here’s a link to a flyer with all the details.  You can sign up in the studio or email me at ~ Terri@SweetTreasuresQuilts.com

If you aren’t local be sure to give it a look.  It’s a great quilt for an even greater cause!

Block 1 cake

 

This is my “Let Them Eat Cake” block, which is block #1.  I’m going to make a 2nd one to use as a mini for birthday parties.  Won’t that be so cute!!  I’m going to hang a little line across one corner with the birthday person’s name on it.  That way you can change out the name!  I’ll show you a picture when it’s all done.  The next family birthday is in March so I can’t wait to long!

Fun with Wool!

Is there an activity you’d love to have more time for …… someday?  For me, I’d love to do more with wool.  I love the look of it, they’re generally smaller projects and very portable.  Since the motifs are stitched down by hand, it can go anywhere with you!  The wool is felted so you don’t need to worry about edges raveling.  There are a number of different ways to do Wool Applique.  Would you like to learn?

Debbie Busby, a friend of mine, and wonderful designer of Wool Applique patterns is going to be here to teach!  Her company is Wooden Spool DesignsShe’s designed a project for us that is soooo adorable!

wool project

October 17 & 18 we’re going to have a Wool Workshop.  Friday evening from 6 – 9 Debbie has a little surprise project for us, to get us warmed up and teach us her technique for Wool Applique.  On Saturday from 10 – 5 we’ll make the tablemat/wallhanging pictured.  It’ll be a fun time of stitching together.  Lunch and snacks are provided.  The cost is $90.00 for the 2 days, food and 2 kits for the projects.  If you’d like to sign up, email me at: terri@sweettreasuresquilts.com.  It’s going to be great fun!!

Beginning in January, Amber will be teaching one of Debbie’s designs.  Blessed Bee, an adorable block of the month featuring Honey Bees.  Class will be the third Thursday of each month for 12 months, 6 – 9 pm.

This is the PERFECT time of year to snuggle in and do some handwork with wool.  We’d love to have you!

Monday’s Motivation

How was your weekend?  I hope you got to do something special!  I had a VERY full one.  Busy, busy and full of fun.

It began with a football game my 5 year old grandson was playing in.  5 year old football is the BEST!  They are so cute.  Some times, they have no idea what they’re doing.  I’m proud to say, my little 5 year old scored a pretty impressive touchdown!  :-)

Amber taught a class in the studio on the sewing caddy’s we have in the studio.  It’s always so much fun seeing how everyone’s projects turn out.  They were all fabulous.  Did you see them on Facebook?  Here’s a link if you didn’t.  Be sure and “like” the Sweet Treasures page if you haven’t already.  https://www.facebook.com/pages/Sweet-Treasures-Quilt-Patterns/150129211668099?hc_location=timeline

I finished off the weekend with about 20 family members here for a birthday dinner for my Mom.  It was a special evening, celebrating how much she means to us.

Mom

Happy Birthday MOM!!

 

Now shifting gears to the Monday’s Motivation ~

Have you ever felt affected by something someone did to you?  I don’t mean feeling hurt or angry but affected in a way that it changed your perception of yourself?  It’s easy for that to happen when someone attacks your character, spreads rumors about you or you’re in a situations where you’re constantly being put down.  What is your response when this happens?  It’s hard to stay positive and stand up for yourself – but you must.  Look at it this way – No one else can define who you are, except you.  How do you want to be known?  Actions ALWAYS speak louder than words.  You will be defined by your actions so SHOW others who you are.  Don’t allow someone else to define you.
