Snapshots Quilt Along Auction

Happy December, fellow quilters! It's Kimberly here today on the Jolly Jabber. Our Snapshots Quilt Along benefiting St. Jude Children's Research Hospital is coming to an end this year, and we have not one, but THREE beautiful Snapshots Quilts for auction. All of the proceeds of these auctions will go toward St. Jude! 

Now let's take a look at some of these Snapshots quilts...

First, my version of the Snapshots Quilt is beautifully custom quilted by Natalia Bonner of Piece N Quilt

Bonnie, Camille, and I also autographed the back!

The second Snapshots quilt was created by Pat Sloan. She sewed up her version in her signature colors and fabrics. Her quilt was quilted by Cindy and Dennis Dickinson of Pinkpaw Quilting.

Last but definitely not least, Anne Sutton of Bunny Hill Designs decided to take on a 30's version of our Snapshots quilt. Her quilt was custom quilted with a wonderful eye for detail by Becky Hubel, how adorable! 

We would like to thank Pat and Anne for donating their time to create these amazing quilts. If you're ready to bid on your favorite or favorites, then head on over to our Auction pages and bid, bid, bid! If you have non-quilty friends who would love to support St. Jude as well, please share these auctions with them. The auction ends December 11, 2015 at 11:59 pm CST. We will announce the winners of each quilt on the blog on December 16, 2015. 

And for those that are sewing along with us, here's a special surprise for YOU! Our last Snapshots Quilt Along block, Walk in the Park. is now available to download! Watch my video tutorial for piecing tips and tricks as well.

Thank you so much for all of your love and support for our Snapshots Quilt Along. We cannot wait to do it again with our Crossroads Quilt Along, next year!
