Challenge Category for the 2018 Quilt Show: Polaroid Block quilts
The Challenge category for this show is the Polaroid snapshot block quilts we made as part of Creative Quiltworks a year
or so ago. In case you are a new member or did not participate at the time, the instructions are below. How you put your
Polaroid blocks together is up to you. There are many ideas on Pinterest and other websites; just search for Polaroid
Here is a note from Holly, who oversaw the original block project:
"At the time the blocks were themed for the months we handed them out; however, the folks that went on to make more
than 12 blocks did not necessarily stick to the theme. People should feel free to use whatever fabric pictures [or novelty
prints] they would like to use to make their blocks. I know some went on to make larger quilts so the themes are just
there for reference. Attached are the directions. Just to stay consistent people may want to use the Kona white which
we purchased from JoAnn Fabrics.
If anyone needs more ideas about these quilts Pinterest has great examples of Polaroid quilts, and Craftsy has a paper
pieced Polaroid camera block that a lot of people have used in their quilts."
