|Cotton + Steel mini made for the Cotton + Steel Mini Quilt Swap using Fat Quarter Shop's "Snapshots" sew along Sewing Machine Block.|
I also put in skeins of embroidery floss as my partner embroiders, some charm squares of Cotton + Steel "Cookie Book", a Lindt chocolate bar, and a thimble and post card from the town I live in. Oh, and a zipper pouch I made Cotton + Steel "Mesa" fabric. It was a fun swap. Can't wait for my package to arrive! :)
If you haven't heard of Fat Quarter Shop's Snapshots Quilt Along it's a fun quilt along they are hosting that benefits St. Jude's Children's Hospital in the USA. For each block pattern you download (there are 12, one for each month) they are asking for a $5.00 (minimum) donation to St. Jude's. I donate $10 every two months. I think some people have also donated $60.00 at the start and then they are set. Of course, if you are able to donate more you certainly can. St. Jude's sends tax receipts out in the mail for the donations.
Six blocks have been released and there is a Facebook group as well as Instagram hashtags (#fqssnapshots) for showing off your work and seeing what everyone else made. I have made 4 blocks so far out of the 6 that have been released. I need to catch up!
This mini quilt was in my Q2 Finish Along goals. Yay! Another finish. Since the second quarter of the year ends in two days I think there will be quite a few projects carried over!
