Fabric Polaroid Swap

After the Blog Hop,  I joined several events - the first is the Fabric Polaroid Swap hosted by Kris at Duke Says Sew What.  This is my first event where I actually send my work to another person.  Can I tell you how nervous I am?  I measured at least three times for each cut, pinned, and sewed slowly, hoping to show my best work.  Three sides were only 1" - I checked and double checked the needle placement multiple times, and measured seams after they were sewn.

Fabric Polaroids
The instructions were to make no more than two of the same fabric.  I chose as many fabrics as I thought would look good as "snapshots" and only duplicated 3.   Well, truth be told, I made myself a complete set to mingle with the the ones I will receive.



I am sending them off in the mail tomorrow - Phew!   I'll be looking forward to receiving the "polaroids" from the other swappers.

Thanks for stopping by.


  1. I know how you feel! The first time I participated in a block swap I measured and measured and MEASURED!! I also did a fair amount of discarding. :-\ The polaroids look like fun.

    1. Thanks for letting me know I am not alone in my concern! Sometimes I expect I should be more confident - I am in my skills but still worry when it comes to others seeing my work!

      p.s. - you are a no-reply commenter

  2. I love these little blocks! Polaroid quilts are the cutest. You chose some really sweet fabrics for the "photos." I love especially the red chrysanthemum print!

  3. Your blocks look sweet, Robin Sue! How fun to be involved in that swap. Looking forward to your showing off what you receive back!


Thank you for taking the time to comment. Comments make me smile!
