SnapShots Quilt Along



I'm happy to announce that I'm participating in the Fat Quarter Shop Snapshots quilt along benefiting St. Jude Children's Research Hospital! (For information on donations, go here).


The Snapshots quilt along will feature Day Sail fabric by Bonnie & Camille, and you can now pre-order kits and patterns from Fat Quarter Shop here. These will be available in early February.

All of the information on this fun quilt along can be found over at the Jolly Jabber blog here.  And there is even an introductory YouTube video available as well...find that here.




I've already made my first three blocks...it's going to be such a fun quilt. I'll be posting about the blocks on the 15th of each month beginning in January. Hope you'll quilt along!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Red and White Quilt Blocks



 My Red and White (and low-volume) Moda Building Blocks quilt has been a lot of fun to work on during the Christmas season. I first posted about this quilt here and here. It's been hard not to work on it more frequently, but I still have gifts to make!

This weekend I promised myself that if I checked a few things off of my list I could make a block for this quilt.

As you can tell...

Small Quilts: Candy Box Table Toppers



Happy Saturday! Today I have some fun small quilts to share made with my Candy Box Table Topper pattern. This time of year is always busy, and it's been fun to see the different versions--many of them made especially for this time of year!



First up is Sue's Christmas version...so fun!



 Next up is another fun holiday version by Donna.


 Hildy made this fun red and pink quilt...love it (and wait until you see her mini Shine for the January Schnibbles parade...she's already finished and sent in her photo)!


 Jackie changed it up a little...such a fun "peppermint twist" version!


 Janet used fresh fall colors for her version.

 And Lee is ready for spring with her quilt!


 Mindy sent in this beautiful photo of her quilt.



 And we'll finish out the parade with Sharon's mini!

Thanks so much to everyone who sent in their photos! We'll take December off and start back with Simply Small projects on January 10! 

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Favorites


 Happy Wednesday...for just a little longer...today was supposed to be my Simply Small post; however, this is the last week of my semester, and I have final papers, re-write papers, and final exams to grade. Then there are grades to figure and get turned in. So since I had my favorites post ready to go...here it is...and I'll post the Simply Small parade this weekend!

Of course Moda Bella Solids are my favorite...and since I just got a new color card recently, it had to be the first thing on my list. I love Bella solids...love the colors, but most of all I love the way they feel and the way they sew. I should also mention I love their quality!
