(Excuse the bad photo -- I clearly took it when there wasn't enough sun out yet!)
I was inspired to grab some Liberty and sew after I saw Corey's and LOVE at do. Good Stitches' Polaroid quilt block projects. I thought what I might do is make large photo blocks with the 5" charms I've acquired through swaps, and then use 2.5" squares for small photos that would go as an outer border for the quilt.
So these are just a few 2.5" photos (I mean the finished, 'developed' photo area is 2 inches finished). I knew that using Liberty prints -- which tend to be patterns rather than fussy-cut images -- would mean I wouldn't achieve the Polaroid effect exactly...But do they look just plain silly, like neither here nor there?
I wouldn't let these blocks go to waste; I'd probably sew a few more to make a cushion cover, and then I would make quilt blocks where the white sashing is even all around (so basically just framing Liberty in white and then sashing in grey). Hmm?
I don't think it's a huuuge decision either way, but I'm a little stuck on whether the Polaroid approach gives anything here. Thanks if anyone can illuminate me!
PS: hmm, I guess part of the issue might be that my white borders are .5" finished rather than .25", so they look even less like Polaroids...Gah!
