    Quilt pattern variation

    Yep, nine patch/snowball quilt variation. I used one snowball block as the center of an Irish Chain quilt...and the center background was muslin with a photo printed on it.

    Very interesting quilt. From a distance it tooks like many pieces of wrapped candy. I had to print out a portion of the quilt to actually see the snowball and the nine patch. Looks fast, easy and fun!

    Check this one out made from men's plaid shirts. This is the one I want to make from my plaid collection.

    Actually Jan, you DID color it correctly. If you substitute cream muslim color for the BROWN in your photo, you'll see you're right. The orange color would be the 30s fabrics... see? You're right after all! Now climb right back up there!

    Very pretty. Thanks, Jan. I would never have guessed that this was made from 2 simple blocks.

    Color values are key to the success of this pattern. This is the time to use your very lightest (white, ivory, etc.) with your darkest prints and/or solids. But maybe that's just me....

    The snowball block and the other are, of course, the same size. 9" (finished size) works fairly well. Any multiple of 3 is fine for the basic blocks. When I drew this up, I intentionally used a reversed color layout. I like to emphasize that color makes a huge difference in how we see patterns. Sorry that I did not say that. Snowball blocks, traditionally are white or very light in the center. When this is called stepping stones, the center is often the darker fabric. I have also seen this pattern with a basic color for the 'snowball' and everything else looking scrappy.
