I saw this swap yesterday, and I knew I had to join up! When I painted my sewing room and reorganized my stash a few months ago, I realized I basically had a collection of novelty fat quarters. Hardly any solids, no blenders, and a few polka dots. Since then, I’ve made some major fabric purchases to round out my stash.
When I saw this swap, I knew it would be a great way to use some of those fun novelty fabrics I have a preference for.
I just love those turtles. I used them to make a zipper pencil case as part of a birthday gift for a friend’s daughter, along with this great book called The Girls’ Doodle Book. I highly recommend this book for any girl ages 8-11 who likes to draw. Now I only have scraps of the turtles left. Perfect for this polaroid block.
I have relatively few “boy” fabrics in my stash, but the cowboys were just a perfect fit for the 2 1/2 inch center.
And you can’t go wrong with ladybugs and garden gnomes!
I wonder who will end up getting these guys??? Also, I’ve been thinking, how cute would a polaroid quilt be with Aneela Hoey fabrics? I guess I’m going to have to pull out some of my Sherbet Pips and Little Apples scraps and make a few more…so far I have 50 done!!!
Bea and I finished her quilt for Ronnie and will be taking photos today! Stay cool!!!
