With my design wall emptied of QPP Project #1, it was free and clear for me to pull out a long standing WIP. Remember this one? Yup, it's the Polaroid I Spy quilt.
Once I figured out just how many more blocks were needed, I set to trimming. I might have gone a little overboard in the making and swapping of Polaroid blocks. But it was so much fun!
When I was getting ready to cut more coloured strips for the edges, I came to a realization. The offcuts from my other blocks could be used for more coloured edges. Less wasted Kona AND a tidier scrap bin. Score!
Squee! Blocks edged in coloured scraps, all ready to be trimmed during another naptime.
In other WIP news, I've been stitching away on my iPhone case (though I'm on a little hiatus due to an injured wrist). Many thanks to the generosity of my MMQG peeps, Jeannette @ Stamp Stitch Create
and Karen @ Sugar Free Quilts
Progress so far. 20 of 60 triangles done!
I also decided what fabrics I'm going to use for my Quilter's Planner cover
. What do you think?
I'm linking up with Let's Bee Social @ Sew Fresh Quilts
, as well as with WIP Wednesday @ Freshly Pieced.

What a cute way to do an I Spy! Darling. The iPhone case intrigues me because I've never seen one. I own a Samsung Galaxy, but I'm sorely tempted to switch to iPhone because of that case. Way too cute.ReplyDelete
Super cute! Loving that Polaroid of the Polaroid...ReplyDelete
Oh man, the Polaroids are looking so good, especially in rainbow order. Yum! I had fun looking at the images and *love* the astronaut one.ReplyDelete
So very colourful! Can't wait to see all the blocks sewn together. Great fabrics for your planner cover. I think I have mine chosen as well.ReplyDelete
Very happy to see these blocks back up on your wall. I love all those fresh Kona frames and how well they play together. Sorry to hear your wrist has been injured. Praying for fast healing!ReplyDelete
Fabulous projects! Your fabric pull is great, I love the colourful dots!ReplyDelete
The I Spy blocks are adorable! How much fun will the littles have with that?? Your fabric pull for your Quilter's Planner is beautiful.ReplyDelete
The Polaroid blocks look like such fun, I will have to remember them whenever/if I ever have kiddos come along. So many fun possibilities! And your phone case is coming along well, it's going to be lovely. :) And I spy Alison Glass! (Not that I'm infatuated or anything. Lol)ReplyDelete
Love your Polaroid I Spy quilt. The rainbow frames are bright, bold and fun!ReplyDelete
LOVE the fabric pull! We just might be fabric twins separated at birth :) Would you send me the selvage I go for the navy? I've used all mine and would love to track down more.ReplyDelete
