Description

I hosted a Polaroid block swap last year and amassed over 200 blocks! So I enlisted the help of my Always Bee Learning bee to help me make a quilt top!

I LOVE this! What a fantastic idea.

Capetowngirl

What a great idea. Love love love. Another thing on my must do list. Really should keep an actual list of these ideas :)

Aquilterstable

Capetowngirl janepez Thanks! Trying to do something a little different with my Polaroid blocks - and I think it's working! ;-)

Mrsdmvh

This is so cool!!!!!! How unique!!! I LOVE IT!

Speattle

Can someone fill me in on what a Poloroid Block is?

Charwirfs

Really nifty idea. Not sure what a Polaroid block is but I like yours. I am with Speattle. What makes it a Polaroid block?

Mymble

Love this- have been planning something similar for my Bee Biased blocks so it is great to see this- it is fabulous!

Aquilterstable

Mymble Mrsdmvh Thanks!

Aquilterstable

Mymble Speattle The Polaroid block is the little fussy cut square framed in white. The bottom is a tad wider, to replicate a Polaroid photo taken from a Polaroid camera. Does that make sense? The total Polaroid block is about 3". I can direct you to specifics if you like.

Mymble

Sounds great- is there a tutorial? Thanks!

IheartDL

This is fabulous!

Ameda

So do you use a permanent marker to identify where the block came from in the bottom white area of each block?

Speattle

Aquilterstable
Yes, please.

Capetowngirl

Aquilterstable yes please. Would love to see this tutorial

Aquilterstable

Speattle Sorry - missed including your RE: the tutorial - see above comment.
Ameda I did not but you certainly could! That's what we used to do, right?! ;-)
IheartDL Thanks! I'm really liking how it's coming along...

Capetowngirl

Aquilterstable Thank you so much for this. I am going to have a "play" and I think I may use this for my month as queen for my block choice.... mmmmmm What possibilities!

Aquilterstable

Capetowngirl Have fun!

Skynme

This is fantastic! I love this block!

Aquilterstable

Skynme It's a fun one, isn't it?!

HawkFan

I love these and the economy blocks. I really like how you set these into a quilt.

Drnic2c

I love this fussy cut block. I love how you fished the quilt.

Aquilterstable

Drnic2c Thanks so much! The Polaroids are very fun little blocks!
HawkFan Not the easiest block to set, at least for me. Glad you like it!

HawkFan

It looks like it was a lot of work, especially with so many of them and at all different angles but it looks fantastic

Aquilterstable

HawkFan Fun work. ;-)
