Here's a fun and modern quilting tutorial for you that will leave you smiling. Learn how to make a Polaroid quilt block!

The Polaroid block is another take on a popular quilt block, the "I Spy" quilt, which is great for kids. (It's fun to hunt and find the different, quirky prints.)

These blocks were super fun to make. One of the best things about making these blocks is getting really creative with the novelty prints you use. I recommend going on a fabric shop treasure hunt to find some really obscure and goofy fabric for the "pictures".
