Snapshots QAL - Like Riding a Bike

I can't believe we are already half way through August!!  Where is this month going??  Anyhow, it is indeed the 15th which means it's a Snapshots QAL  day!!!  And this is so fun, because August means we have passed the halfway point and it is all down hill from here :)  This month's  block is called Like Riding a Bike and it is simply adorable!!!

I loved riding my bike as a child and had one that looked similar to this, you know, with the big banana seat and the basket with the little plastic flowers on the front of it.  I spent a lot of time on that bike, and actually got a quite a few stitches when I fell off of it once and landed on my chin.  Good times ;)

If you sewing along or want to join in on the fun,  you can download the block pattern right here and then don't forget to donate the $5.00 for the pattern to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital ;)  This is such an amazing fundraiser!!!

This block was a lot of fun to make with lots of little intricate pieces.  Those pinwheels finish at 1 1/2".  So cute!!  So to help you along with all of that little baby piecing,  Kimberly has put together this  fabulous You Tube video that walks you through it step by step!!!
