Snap Shots Update

Most of the children in our area went back to school on Tuesday.    I don’t know what happened to 3 months off during the summer and back to school in September, but here they started school on the hottest day we’ve had so far (106).  No wonder it seems like time is flying by.

I’ve finally had a little time to catch up on the Fat Quarter Shop Snap Shots quilt blocks!  These blocks are really fun to make and if you haven’t started yet, you can still get the pattern on the Jolly Jabber blog.  I’m using assorted fat quarters from American Jane’s “Fresh Air” fabric line.  I’ve mixed in some solid Moda Bella’s for contrast, and so far I love how it’s looking.  Fresh Air Fat Quarters

Are you ready for my Snap Shots blocks?

I’ve got to find some better “puppy” eyes.  I thought about embroidering his eyes, but maybe I’ll find the perfect black buttons.  I’ll wait and decide when all the blocks are done.  In just a few weeks it will be time for Fat Quarter Shop to release that darling bicycle block!  I think it’s my favorite block in the quilt.


Thank you Fat Quarter Shop for designing a darling quilt for a wonderful cause!
