About the Class
Your favorite FPP teacher is back at it again!! Join us this year in making a picture-perfect Polaroid quilt! This pattern is a fun all-skill levels foundation paper piecing pattern with a lot of flexibility in design. Whether you’ve never paper pieced or you’re a pro, you’ll love how fun this 58x74” quilt turns out. And, not only will you be sharpening those FPP skills, but you’ll also learn a variety of ways to print on fabric at home during this class. We’ll spend our time together assembling the awesome 18” Polaroid camera in class and even assemble some Polaroid picture blocks...including a block with a photo of your choice (teacher will provide). You can decide if you want to complete this quilt with your favorite photos or feature your favorite fabric collections! Don’t miss out on what’s sure to be another popular class at the 2024 event!
This quilt is great because you have a lot of freedom. The size of the quilt, the layout, if you want the tilted
photos or not, where you want the camera, or how large you would like each block. The original quilt design is 70” x 70” and includes 64 eight-inch blocks. The fabric requirements below are for that finished size. My sample size lap quilt is approx xx” x 00” with 38 eight-inch blocks and one 16” block.
• Background - 3 yards
• Polaroid Picture Outline/Camera (white) - 1 1/2 yards
• Polaroid Camera Details (Med Grey) - 1/8 of a yard
• Polaroid Camera Details (Dark Grey) - 1/8 of a yard
• Polaroid Camera Details (Small scraps of red, yellow, blue, and black)
• 36-63 pieces of the “photo” of each Polaroid: 4 1/2 x 5” scrap or fussy cut piece of fabric. I used a
couple of charm packs for a lot of my photo centers.
Hi, I’m Lori Allred. My life, like a patchwork quilt assembled from pieces collected over time, blended into a beautiful collection of many crafty talents. I have literally been making things my whole life, but when I made my first quilt in 2017, I was hooked and have been addicted ever since. For me, quilting is the perfect combination of creativity and technical challenge, that results in a lasting and valuable object. I am group-taught, meaning I learned from quilting with groups of friends new and old. If you want to learn to quilt, go hang out with quilters! I love the challenge of learning new techniques and patterns. I give everything at least one try before deciding I’m not too fond of a method or style of quilting. I’m drawn to bright colors and the precision of foundation paper pieced quilts. I have been teaching for over 25 years in the craft industry. I live in Layton, Utah, and am the mother of two amazing adult kids. When I’m not quilting I’m on the pickleball quilt….since pickleball is LIFE!! My day job includes marketing and graphic design, but it still gives me time to quilt!
