Patchwork Fabric, Fun and Friends

Snapshots Block 2 'Sew on and on'

Every year the Fat Quarter Shop share a beautiful quilt pattern whilst raising thousands of pounds for the charity of their choice.

In 2014 it was the Wishes quilt-along in support of the Make-a-Wish Foundation.

In 2015 it was the very popular Snapshots quilt-along that raised funds for St. Judes.

And this year it is the Patchwork quilt-along in support of the Make-a-Wish Foundation.

The block patterns are free but it would be lovely if you could support this year’s charity with a few dollars - just go to the Fat Quarter Shops’ Donation page to find out how.

I am joining in again this year with the Patchwork quilt-along but instead of a full size quilt I am making an autumnal table runner.  If you want to join me you will need lots of lovely autumnal fabrics....  
Despite its name I think this collection would be perfect for autumn.

....and you will need to make two of each block. I will be back next week to show you the blocks made so far but it isn't too late to join in - the blocks are quick and easy.  


  1. Very nice to see these all in one spot! Wasn't some one making one of each but a larger block? I like your runner idea!

    1. I'm not sure about bigger Linda. But Sondra ( provided cutting sizes to make a smaller version of the Snapshots blocks and that is what I made. You can find the details here

  2. Love the runner I need to get to work!!

    1. It isn't a lot of work Judy - just two of each block. And they are lovely and easy.
