Picture Perfect Polaroid Blocks

Back in July, we had a great demo at our quilt guild meeting. Pam showed us how to make the Picture Perfect Polaroid Blocks. These little guys are fast, easy, and addictive!

We followed the demo with a swap and a challenge. Everyone who wanted to participate in the swap made blocks to swap at the August meeting and then were challenged to complete a project using the Polaroid Blocks.

I used several of the blocks that I received in the swap and added a few from my stash to make this little kids quilt.


I really like the look of the blue and the white together. To continue the "clean" look of this quilt, I did simple straight line quilting along the sashing.

A couple of my favorite blocks:

This happy cat reclining in his inner tube with an umbrella drink just cracks me up!

And I love this little mouse who found his way to the bottom corner of the quilt. He kind of looks like he's trying to scurry off.

I wish I'd been able to see the quilt! It looks great in the pictures, and now I have more ideas for what to do with mine!

Oh this is so cute! I wish I had seen it before I joined my blocks into 4-patches. I'm looking for inspiration for how to put it all together now. Yours is really cute!
