August Swap and September Challenge

Our July program included a hands on tutorial by Pam, showing us all how to make the Picture Perfect Polaroid blocks. These little blocks are a lot of fun to do, and they go together rather quickly! This seemed like the perfect opportunity to do a fun swap and follow it up with a challenge! For the August meeting, each member is to bring a minimum of 10 completed Picture Perfect Polaroid blocks, contained in a paper bag. We will then choose one block from each bag. The challenge for the September meeting, is to reveal a completed project using the PPP blocks. You can make a wallhanging, mug rug, mini quilt, baby quilt, pillow, etc. If you wish to bring more than 10 blocks, you are welcome to do so. Please make sure that the number you bring is in increments of 10, and each batch of 10 has its own bag. It's very important that you DO NOT trim the blocks! Instructions for making these blocks can be found here. Please use Kona Cotton in white, for your block sashing. Here is a pillow that Pam made and shared with us at the July meeting:
These are the block I've made for our swap:
Our August meeting will be held at Strawberry Patches on Saturday, August 18th, from 2:00 - 4:00. I can't wait to see all of the little blocks that everyone makes! 

Until next we meet,

  1. If you are thinking about you blocks, think about themes like holiday fabric, modern prints, brights, travel prints, baby prints, abstract, or just mix it up from scraps! Jelly roll leftovers work well too! Have fun trimming and before you know it, you'll have your blocks made!
