Quilt Blocks


Finally, on month 12 of the Ringo Pie bee I have made a block that I am happy with!  Amy  went with a camera/film theme for her month–truth be told, I have been intimidated with this theme since I found out about it.  Seriously folks, I was thinking I was gonna have to paper piece a vintage camera or some such thing and I knew it just wasn’t gonna come out.  So, when I hit upon this whole polaroid idea I knew it was something that I could do.  I am so pleased with how this block turned out and I hope that Amy loves it!

Let’s revisit my Ringo Pie Blocks from the last year shall we? =)
