Project Quilting Week 6 - "Time is Up"

"Time is Up" was the theme for the final week of season 8 of Project Quilting. 
When asking myself what to make, the only thing that kept coming to mind was song lyrics from the cartoon version of the Hobbit.
All week I have been singing, "The answer is Time..."  I suppose I could have made a mini quilt that had something to do with the riddle about time between Bilbo and Golem, but I wouldn need longer than a week to put that idea together. So I decided to go with a quilt that represented something that could capture moments in time.

Recently I participated in a Polaroid block swap on Instagram and decided these type of blocks would be perfect for "captured moments in time".
For this qulit I made the blocks bigger than the regular tutorials you see on the internet because I wanted to make the quilt big enough for a toddler to carry around. 
I fussy cut thirty eight 3.5 inch squares for the Polaroid base, 

I enjoyed going through my stash looking for the perfect "pictures".

I refound some old favorites.

The Polaroid Camera block comes from Quiet Play and went together fairly quick.
The quilt measures approximately 35in x 45in.

Make sure you head to Persimon Dreams to see all the entries and vote for your favorites!
