Time to get it done quilters! I will host a BIG giveaway to someone that has sewn up their Vacation Time quilt. That post will be the first week in November, you'll then have until Thanksgiving to post your photo. So we need to get sewing right?

They are short, to the point, and I hope inspire you to SEW! I think it's fun to talk to you sometimes instead of ALWAYS typing. Let me know what you think!
I am just a TINY bit behind on sharing my St. Judes charity blocks. Have you zoomed along without me? Here is Block 8 of the free Snapshots patterns to support St. Judes. A wonderful Sew Along sponsored by the Fat Quarter Shop!
I decided 2015 was my year to do a charity piece to benefit an organization. When I saw that the Fat Quarter shop is again hosting a sew along to raise funds for St. Jude's I knew this was the one I would do.
Here I am all organized to sew!
For the quilt along, the patterns will be available for FREE download each month around the 15th on the Fat Quarter Shop blog.
There are a few TINY pinwheels in this block... they really ARE adorable.
But I'm glad there were not too many of them!
Well this happened!
Sometimes you just need to start over and make it right... so I did.
The bike block is SO ADORABLE!
The front part... zoom zoom!
look what I found at Target $1.00 bins!
POLKA dot clips... yes.. I had to have a few sets. Because they need to match right?
And my Beach Cruiser is ready to ride!
Gosh I love this block!
Here are all the blocks so far.. I hope it bring a LOT of money when we do the raffle, it's going to be so fun to see it put together!
The best part about this quilt along is raising money for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. For every pattern downloaded, Fat Quarter Shop is encouraging a $5 donation to St. Jude to help advance cures for pediatric catastrophic diseases through research and treatment.
Fat Quarter Shop and Moda Fabrics are matching all donations up to $10,000!
And I asked my good friends Cindy and Dennis of PinkPaw studio if they would partner with me to quilt my quilt and we will be auctioning it to raise even more money at the end of the year. That means you can bid and win my quilt!
