Polaroid Pillowcase, The Third One & A Few Orphaned Polaroids

Patchwork, Polaroid Photo Pillowcase, Puppilalla, Cushion Cover,

There is nothing like a bit of pressure to get things done.

I spent the weekend away up North at the Baltic Sea and I really, really, really, really wanted to get this last pillowcase done before hopping on the train.

My friend Alex lives in Greifswald and has a 4 year old daughter. I thought the pillowcase would make a lovely 'hostess gift' for the little one. It did to an extent. 30 minutes after having unwrapped her present, the little girl came back to ask if I had ANOTHER one for her...   =)

This is the first project of my 3rd quarter Finish-A-Long list that I have completed. In fact it is the first Finish-A-Long project completed this year. I just like how cheerful it looks. Oh - and if you want to see more of the initial Polaroid panel construction process, have a look here.

That leaves me with the last final and therefore now orphaned Polaroids. As it is no use for them to gather dust, I am happy to give them away to anyone planning a similar project. Any takers? Just leave a comment beneath this post.

The fussy cuts in the middle measure 3 x 3 inches. First come, first served.

  3. OMG! I love that black poodle square! Too cute! You keep tempting me to make a polaroid quilt of my own Katrin. I'll have to keep my eyes out for some cute fat quarters to use.

  5. Love those polaroid blocks. I have been meaning to make a polaroid quilt for some time now. Even bought some Heather Ross fabric (since it is perfect for making polaroid blocks), but always feel like I do not have enough variety, that I need to buy more interesting fabric. Therefore a pillow is such a terrific idea since it requires only a fraction of the blocks. Oh, I'd be happy to take your leftover blocks :-D
    Hugs,

  7. It's so gratifying to have someone love your work, isn't it? It's hard to know what to do with extras, isn't it. (Sometimes I donate them to Goodwill as I just don't want to deal with them - hopefully someone else will :)

  9. Wunderschönes Kissen (und auch passendes Quilt dazu!)Ganz toll finde ich vor allem den gelben Hintergrund, 1. weil mir die Farbe an sich gefällt und 2. ich mich immer freue mal was anderes als weiß oder low volume zu sehen!
