Snap! That back!

I had no sewjo about 11 days ago but getting along to quilt group kick started it again. That, and the girls in my Wombat Stew group who seem to be whipping through their projects at the moment.

Yesterday I printed off some yet to be released paper pieced blocks from Kristy at Quiet Play. She made these up for Gina of Party of Eight when she made a polaroid quilt. 

I thought they would make great blocks for my quilt back for the Wonky 9 Patch Polaroid quilt that my QCA Bees help to make.

I decided to do them in some boy colours as I hope that this Bushfire Quilt will make it into the hands of a young lad. I also used up some of the boy I-Spy fabrics that have been languishing in my stash for some time.

The shot at the top was the best that I could achieve with autumnal sun on a windy day. Fran did try to help but it was easier to climb the hills hoist instead.

So I am hoping that, as a second pattern tester for these blocks, Kristy will release them into the wild soon.

And I am so pleased to have featured her fab Polaroid camera block (made by her).

Now to manufacture up enough Sewjo to get this thing basted next week!

Linking up to TGIFF being hosted by Wombat Stew girl Midgey at Ms Midge.

  9. This is my first visit to your blog (through TGIFF) and I love what I see so far! The Polaroid camera in the center with the strewn snapshots is brilliant. I really love the snapshots blocks I have seen around blog-land. Your version looks great! Very inspiring!
