Snapshots finish

You've likely heard of Fat Quarter Shop as an online store which carries pretty much any kind of fabric you might be looking for.

You may also know Fat Quarter Shop for their generous support of the quilting community through supporting giveaways and QALs - including my very own Bargello QAL!

They also support a charity each year with a QAL. Last year, they published a series of patterns as part of their Snapshots quilt.   Patterns for each block were available for free and participants were encouraged to donate to St Judes.  (Fat Quarter Shop matched the donations as well as providing the pattern.

I finished my Snapshots quilt in December.  My favorite block may very well be the camera block which I moved from the back to the front.    (I left the wine glass off the picnic basket block, not because I don't like wine.  (ahem, I do!) But I just couldn't find the fabric mix I wanted.)

Although I've taken most of my large quilts to my LAQ, I decided to do this one myself, doing organic wavy lines with my walking foot.

The quilt is basted and I've started to quilt it.

Finishing the quilt is my goal for April.  Besides quilting, I intend to add some extra embellishments. Maybe buttons for eyes and perhaps whiskers for the kitten.

This year Fat Quarter Shop has another QAL underway called Crossroads which benefits the March of Dimes.  These are my blocks so far for the Crossroads QAL.  Want to play along?  The pattern for all the blocks can be found here.  I blog about my progress on my A Stitch in Time blog.

I am very proud that Fat Quarter Shop is a sponsor of my blogs A Stitch in Time and Elm Street Quilts.

I'll be linking up with OMG here.

Have a wonderful day! Patty
