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!
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!
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!
Thanks for visiting!
Blessings ~ Terri
