SNAPSHOTS quilt by Fat Quarter Shop, and month end STASH report

Quilts don't get much cuter than this.  I love working on this gal's quilts because she is a Very.Accurate.Piecer.

I love the picnic block because, um, lemme think... it includes a glass of bubbly!!

Sunbonnet Sue is taking the dog to the beach.

Pinwheels are flying out of the basket on the bike.

Who doesn't like cake???

You probably wouldn't be reading this blog if you didn't love sewing (or someone who sews???)

Even the backing has a camera block!
The piecer made a mockup of the quilt where she had doodled quilting ideas, and brought it along with the quilt.  That is a GREAT thing to bring to your quilter when you have a 'special' quilt and your own ideas.  You may not get exactly what you drew, but it is a great jumping off point for the longarmer.
The patterns are available on the Fat Quarter Shop blog... here.  As they have requested, you should make a charitable donation to express your appreciation.

I was doing really well for the first two months of the year.  Then Sew Little Time came to retreat with fabric, and then Red Hat day took us to two quilt shops. 

Here is a pic of some of the March fabric used.  So cute!  It almost makes me wish I was four years old again.  And then it occurs to me that if I WAS four years old people would frown on my martini consumption.

  1. Considering the things I have seen people wear this week, you wearing a larger copy of this outfit would fit the world today. My t-mom would tell me that being a grandmother means you can act like your grands. I wonder what she would say about being a great grandmother. LOL
