Snapshots QAL - Triple Scoop Sundae

I finished Block 6, the Triple Scoop Sundae.
I like it, I really, really do!
I'm going to be honest and tell you that this is my second try at the block.

I originally made the block in different prints.
The ice cream drowned in the toppings, and the pistachio ice cream piece was too big (I guess) and it puckered.
Here it is....
Oh boy, I thought it would be pretty, but...it's going to my orphan block box :)
I like the cherry on top though!

The Snapshots QAL is sponsored by The Fat Quarter shop.
They suggest making a donation to St. Jude's Hospital.
I've pinned all the blocks on my Pinterest board here.
Here are the previous 5 blocks that I've made.

Next week, I hope to sew the camera block and add the trim and sashing.
Are any of you working on this quilt?
Leave me a comment and tell me where I can see your photos :)

  1. I have been making these blocks, but instead of putting them into a large quilt I am turning them into mini quilts. I have not made the triple scoop sundae yet, but it is on my to do list. I hope to get some more B & C fat quarters at the quilt shop on Wednesday first. I like your second try best--I want to avoid the same issue. Thank you for sharing!

  2. I like the ice creams to be different colors then they don't blend together and stand out more. Very cute.

  3. Hi Cynthia! I love your blocks. I'm 2 blocks behind on this QAL. I had to make two of my blocks twice to get them right. You are always so productive. I've been busy with hummingbird feeders, watering flowers and lots of weed pulling. Add to that cleaning house (I'm anal about cleaning..lol) I'm trying to keep up with my quilting projects. I always love your work and love that you share it with us.

  4. I abandoned my first attempt at this block too. I wrote about it on my blog too. LOL
