March Mini Quilt
#stqminisquiltalong

The March winners are: Eva Duchateau and Julie Anderson.  Congratulations girls!!  They’ve won  a coupon for a free mini kit of their choice!

It’s so fun seeing the different versions of the same pattern over on Instagram!  Go visit and take a look.

April’s mini is “Round & Round” by Thimbleblossoms.  Hope you’ll join in on the fun!!  Click HERE if you need all the details for the Quilt Along.

We have two examples of the Round & Round quilt.  The smaller of the two is the actual pattern size (11″ x 11″).  The original pattern is a grid using 1.5″ squares and half-square triangles.  For the larger I used 2″ – just a bit larger pieces, which resulted in a  17″ square quilt.  I LOVE them both!  Kits are available for both HERE.

I had fun playing around with these quilts this month during their photo shot.  I used the aqua version in my Easter mantel decorations.  The “wreath” of friendship stars are so cute for accenting décor on a table.

 I hope you’re having fun using your quilts.  Because of their size they are soooo versatile!  I love moving them around and using them in different ways.



Thanks for visiting!

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!
