Snapshots - Up, up and away!

Have you ever had the chance to ride in a hot air balloon?

I did!

When my husband and I were first married, we went to visit friends in San Francisco and they treated us to a ride in the balloon as a wedding gift.

It was amazing.  So silently we floated along.  (This was a long time ago so I don't have any digital photos.....)

Up, up and away is block 7 in Fat Quarter Shop's Snapshots block of the month.  They just published the finishing instructions so I am going to start to assemble the blocks a bit and watch carefully for color balance as I go through the last 5 blocks.

The apron is my favorite block so far, followed by the tea pot.

You can find the pattern for this month's block  here and more information on the Fat Quarter Shop page.  Besides the fun of building the quilt, this is all about donating to St Jude.

I'm using a fat 8th bundle of Moda Miss Kate for the blocks.

Are you doing this one too?

Happy Stitching!

  1. Such a pretty balloon. Your blocks are looking great together!! I let this QAL fall off my list but not before I donated to the very worthy cause. So glad FQS is doing this :)


Leave a stitch...
