A Snack Time Quilt Finish!

Hi everyone!

Last March, I took a class with Julie of Jaybird Quilts. She had finished up her Snack Time pattern, and I was able to purchase a copy of the pattern from the wonderful Quiltmaker booth of goodies outside the classroom area.

I started working on piecing the top sometime last summer and finished it during the fall. Then, other projects popped up, and I never finished the quilting!

This weekend, I finally finished my Snack Time and took some photos of my completed quilt at my sister’s beautiful cabin in the woods!

I used a Bali Pop (2.5″ pre-cut strips) from Hoffman Fabrics in Rum Raisin. I really loved the look of the purples and greens together. For the background, I went with Kona white, which really makes those batiks pop!! The piecing and quilting is with white Aurifil thread.

Here are some pics of the quilt front:

For the backing, I went with Kona cotton in Lupine with some left-over Snack time blocks, Kona white, and a label.

Naturally, this quilt had to be inspected professionally and so Miss Gracie gave us her paw of approval!

I still have the original quilt top from that class, Boxed In, to finish. I’ll get it done eventually!

Happy quilting!

  1. Yummy! Your Gracie looks a bit like my Gizmo, also a very skilled quilt inspector although he is quite inclined to lay in the middle of whatever I want to work on and demand to be petted instead!

I love your comments!
