Snapshots - Final Block - A Walk in the Park

Are you ready for a new Snapshots block?  It's that time again!!  Plus it's the last block, I can't believe we're at the end!

This month's block is A Walk in the Park, my latest favorite.

This block is very easy and goes together quickly.  I made my block exactly like the pattern except for the beverage in the glass.

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 $36,359, how great is that!  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.

Here are a few more folks participating in the sew along, be sure to check out their blocks.

Pat Sloan of The Voice of Quilting
Lori Holt of Bee in My Bonnet
Sherri McConnell of A Quilting Life
Pam Viera-McGinnis of Pam Kitty Morning
Anne Sutton of Bunny Hill Designs
Stephanie Kendron of The Modern Sewciety
Natalia Bonner of Piece N Quilt
Greg Jones of Grey Dogwood Studios
Jessie Fincham of Messy Jesse

Additionally, the Fat Quarter Shop is auctioning off 3 finished Snapshot quilts with all the proceeds also going to St. Jude Children's Hospital.  One quilt is made by the Fat Quarter Shop, another by Anne Sutton, and one by Pat Sloan.  All three quilts have a different look, and all are amazing.

Thanks for following along, I've enjoyed each block and can hardly wait to have my top all done, hopefully by the first of the year!


  1. Love your block and it's kind of sad that this quilt-along now done. Looking forward to the one next year:-)
