Today is Giveaway Day But Meanwhile I'm Having Fun with Polaroid Blocks

Thank you all for the tremendous response to the Tula Pink The Birds and The Bees fat quarter giveaway.  At 7:00 p.m. PST I'll close the giveaway and then hope to have the winner posted by Saturday morning.  There is still time to enter - just go to my post and follow the instructions to enter.  I've been petting the fabric - those lavenders are really something!

Meanwhile, I mentioned last week that I had joined the Picture Perfect Polaroid Block Swap Here and have been fussy cutting my way to lots and lots of little polaroid blocks for the swap.  It's a lot of chain piecing, pressing and cutting apart after the fussy cutting, but the blocks do go together rather quickly. 

After fussy cutting the blocks, I first did this:


Then this:



And finally this:


The first 15 little snapshots for the swap!  If you would like to see a tutorial on how to make these blocks, CapitolaQuilter has a great one HERE. There are 60 swappers in this swap, so I can send duplicates of some blocks and not create any problems for the swap momma Deb.  She will have her hands full spreading out all of the little blocks she gets from so many swappers!

I better get myself to work and stop dilly-dallying around here on the internet!

Aaaanyway, that's it from the Robertson household this Friday morning.

  2. Yours are awesome - and so quick and easy to do. I sent in 30 :) Can't wait to see what I get back -- I hope one of your little red kids. I sent in a kid in black ink and would love a red one :)
