Polaroid Calendar Instructions

The basic polaroid block construction is well 

documented on the internet but I like this tutorial 


I got this picture from there.

I have written some simple

 directions, should anyone want to make their own 

Polaroid Calendar.

20cm of solid fabric is enough for each 

calendar page.

Each Polaroid block is surrounded by 2" strips, 

two 4" long for each side and 

two 6.5" long for the top and bottom.

Trim each one to a 5" square,

angling your ruler for some if you like.

Piece them together in pairs,

and then into one group of four. 

Add a 1" by 9.5" strip to the top,

And a 1" by 10" strip to either side.

Add a 1.5" by 10.5" strip to the main body of the 


Embroider the chosen month onto a 

white 2.5" by 10.5" strip,

Add this strip, followed by the last one,

cut at 2.5" by 10.5"

The final dimensions should be 10.5" by 15".

Quilt as desired and bind with a matching binding!

If you have the stamina, or are mad like me,

make twelve-

one for each month of the year!

Or four- one for each season.

I'd love to know if you make one

Hello, thank you for sharing this tutorial with us. I'd like to try the 4 seasons for 2015. Beatrice (from France).

Sorry, what is the size of the polaroid square itself? I can't seem to find it. Thanks.

They look great, but what do you do with them when they are finished?
