KC Scrappy Bee blocks for Tammie

Up first for the new round of the Kansas City Modern Quilt Guild Scrappy Bee is Tammie, who requested Polaroid blocks. Tammie asked for two blocks, but they are so quick and easy, four seemed in order. I had a grand time digging through scraps, searching for the perfect little pieces to fussy cut. It was a walk down memory lane, finding just the right pieces. The turtle fabric was from the very first quilt I ever made for a friend who loves sea turtles. The monkey was from a zoo print I used in a memory quilt for my nephew after he spent part of a summer vacation in the Midwest. The rabbit is from a work in progress for my Mom. The cat, which is my favorite, is from a quilt my mom and I made for my dear Aunt Emma, who passed earlier this year. It warms my heart to know these little scraps will carry the love from making the four original quilts into the quilt Tammie is making.
