Basic Skills Necessary:

Pattern Description:

Change out your Photos anytime you like in this very simple PAPER-PIECED project! You'll never buy another frame again after making any of these Snapshot Quiltlets!!

There are FIVE Block Options from which to choose:

1. Tree Block Option
2. Sunshine Block Option (nice for photos of kids & pets)
3. Sailboat Block Option

First, determine the Layout of your Photo Frame based on the orientation of your photo - Horizontal (7" wide x 5" tall) or Vertical (5" wide x 7" tall). Foundation Units are INCLUDED for BOTH Layouts - as well as complete Paper-Piecing Techniques.

You can also mount smaller photos, mementos, etc. onto a piece of cardstock using double-sided sticky tape! Get creative & get those photos out of the box!
