    I too saw this quilt on a shophop web site and agree it would be lovely in 30's prints. Even thought about doing that too. Think I will check out the batik one on quilter's cache too. Love it when two simple blocks can make such a stunning quilt don't you?
    wonderfully and beautifully made, even if you can't see it on the outside

    You can make the blocks any size you wish. The nine patches I am making are made with 2" strips sewn together into strips sets of 3 fabrics each. The blocks finish at 5" square before they are joined to each other. The snowball blocks I am making also end up 5" square before they are joined to each other (of course---they have to be the same size as the nine patches). Those are made with a 5" square of colored fabric and four 2.5" squares, one for each corner (sew just outside a drawn diagonal line, corner to corner, and then trim out the middle layer or both bottom layers on the outside corners, whatever is your preference.) Now when you make the four squares for the Snowball corners that large, you don't have to match points when the squares are sewn to the nine patches, which makes the quilt very easy to construct. This slightly changes the appearance of the finished pattern. Hth. It's a very pretty pattern.

    Okay, Ladies, here are the notes for your cut sizes to make a 6" finished block for this quilt.
    (To make a 9" finished block, use 3.5" cuts for small squares and 9.5" cuts for the large snowball squares.)

    Note that along the edges of the quilt in the picture (page 1 of this topic), she has used partial blocks to create her look. You can do that with these same measurements, or just start and end your rows of blocks with a 9-patch, which is probably how I'd lazily do it.
    The border is a "piano key" effect using the strips from which she made her 9-patches.

    So simple and yet it looks so complex. Want to leave each of the grandchildren a "wedding" quilt and this may just be the one. Thanks for sharing.
