Snapshots Block 6 - Triple Scoop Sundae

Are you ready for a new Snapshots block?  It's that time again!!  The months are just flying by, we're half way there.

This month's block is Triple Scoop Sundae, my latest favorite.

I made a few changes to my block.  I used a different Bonnie and Camille family of fabric for the ice cream scoops, I used Hello Darling.   The rest of the fabric is from Day Sail, but I chose different pieces for the ice cream dish.  

This block is not hard, but I did make one mistake when adding the background corners to the ice cream scoops, so take your time, double check and pay close attention.

I am thrilled that the FQS has already surpassed it's initial goal of raising $10,000 for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital and its new goal of $20,000. The last time I checked the amount raised was over $26,000. Great job, give yourself a pat on the back!  As a reminder, the monthly patterns are a free download, a donation is up to you, the suggested donation is $5.  Here is a link to the pattern, instructional video, donation page, and everything else you need to know.  (click here)  The backing and finishing directions are also available this month.
