Stash Bee: Hive Six

Some months I have it all right, and some months I don't. April was a do not have it all together month. Although, the vacation was time well spent, it really messed with my sewing time. This is actually LAST months Stash Bee block for Nicole in Hive 6. She requested Polaroids!  How retro and fun. 


The block was paper pieced and went together smoothly, the hardest part was "taking the picture." What was I going to fussy cut into the centers?!  Nicole also asked us to share the best thing we ever made. Well the best thing was a teddy bear I made my Father using a dress shirt of my Papa's. It was an experience to work in 3D and meaningful to use something so special. 

Signing out a week late ....

  1. I've never joined a Bee so I am not sure how it works. Your Polaroid paper piecing blocks are so cute and I love the fabric choices for the photos too. The best thing I have ever made was a summer dress for my granddaughter which she loved so much that she wore it for 2 summers.

  2. I really love your polaroids. I think almost all of the versions I've seen of this block in the past have involved fussy cut figures or items, but I have to say that I think your florals blow those out of the water. They really are stunning and perfectly depic the sort of photos that I love myself.

  8. I adore these Polaroid blocks, they're so fun and quirky. Great choices for fussy cutting flowers. The past few weeks have been a struggle to get sewing time in but there's been too many distractions, including the sunshine and lack of snow :)

  9. There is something about Polaroid blocks that is very endearing - a bit retro, a bit of fun in a small project maybe, no idea but i want to make a polaroid quilt some day!
