Snapshots Quilt Along - Block 2: Sew On & Sew On

Welcome to month two of the Fat Quarter Shop, Snapshots quilt-a-long! The QAL is benefiting St Jude's Childrens Hospital, so FQS are asking quilter's for a small donation for each monthly block. This month it's this super fun sewing machine block! So fun! You can find this new block available here

The finished block measure up at 12" x 16" so it's a great size to use as a decorative mini quilt for your sewing room! (which I'm quite tempted to do!) I based the purple and grey colour's on my own Janome machine :-) I actually used a patterned white fabric for the main section of the machine initially, but it didn't stand out very well with the Kona Snow backing so I un-picked it all and started again with the checked blue fabric. Much better! "If at first we don't succeed, try, try again". 

And here's my first block! 'Let Them Eat Cake', which I didn't get round to sharing on the blog last month. Yummy, yummy! These are fun to make, I hope you can join in too. Please find all the details on the FQS blog here. Be sure to stop by the other bloggers to see their finished blocks this month too! :-)
