Snapshots QAL - Let Them Eat Cake

Yippee, today is the first day of the Snapshots QAL!!!   And up first, block 1 . . . Let Them Eat Cake!!  Isn't it just so fun.  Seriously, I will admit, I really wanted a piece of cake to eat by the time I was done making this block.  It looks so yummy :)

Not only was this block a picture of cake, but it was also a piece of cake to put together ;)  No joke, I timed myself.  It took 30 minutes to sew this block together!!  Yup I spent more time pressing the fabric and cutting the pieces then sewing it together.  So fun and so fast!!  

So, do you want to make a yummy cake block too??  You can download the 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 cause and it is so fabulous that Fat Quarter Shop and Moda will be matching our donations up to $10.000.00!!  

Kimberly also made putting this block together even easier with this fabulous You Tube video.  Bonnie and Camille start it off with some special Cake Memories  as well ;)  So cute!!!

  1. Loving this! I unfortunately can't join in the QAL as I have too much else going on but this was perfect for a Crafty Birthday Bash I am part of for the year and I needed to make a birthday pillow! I'm finishing mine up tonight as the pillow and this makes me even more exciting!


Thank you so much for your sweet comments. I just love hearing from you!!
Have a Happy Quilting Day :)
