Block 5 of Fat Quarter Shop Snapshots Quilt-along

Fat Quarter Shop Snapshots Quilt-Along - Patchwork by Angie WIlson of

It’s time to reveal another block in the Fat Quarter Shop’s Snapshot Quilt-along and today is Block 5 “Kindred Kitchen” (you can get the pattern by clicking here). This block totally appealed to the baker in me and I had so much fun daydreaming about yummy treats while making this block.

It came together really quickly and I’m totally loving the way these blocks use rectangles and squares to get the sloping angles on the frills. This is definitely another pattern you’re going to have to pay attention to when you’re putting it together. If you zag instead of zigging you’ll be recutting fabric pieces to get it to work as there’s no unpicking for a block you have to trim and press. 

I’m sewing all of my blocks with fabric from the Kona 2014 New Colours Fat Quarter Bundle and using Kona White for the block’s background. I love this combination and it just so happens to match my Block 1 “Let Them Eat Cake”. Next months block is also something that I love… ice-cream! It will also be the half way point of all the blocks and I’m so excited to get started on it.

For all of 2015 Fat Quarter Shop will be revealing a block a month of the Snapshots Quilt which was designed by the legendary Mother-Daughter duo Bonnie & Camille. The quilt is made up of 12 novelty blocks that capture and celebrate moments of happiness in our lives and is called “Snapshots”. Fat Quarter Shop are asking people to donate US$5 for each block that they download the pattern for with all money benefiting St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. (A fabulous cause!)

  1. I love it! I haven’t sewn mine yet. I have to sew another 2012 BOM block first to get the scraps as I want to use the Hounds tooth print from the “vintage modern” line for my apron. It’s going to be so fun to see all the different versions of the quilt at the end of the year.

    • That’s one of the things I’m really looking forward to seeing – everyone else’s versions! The blocks are so versatile and I love that they’re the perfect size to make for cushions or mini’s. So handy with all the mini swaps happening!

  2. Love your solid color versions. I will be doing a 3rd quilt I guess!
    I am doing large and mini.

    • Thanks Rochelle! I’m loving the mini version. I’m not sure I could juggle another one at this time, but the blocks alone will make handy mini’s to have for gifts!
