    Help about a pattern please.

    I need to know where I can find the name and instructions of the following pattern;
    Charm pack square with opposite corners a triangle from a 21/2inch .
    It is my friend pattern she cn't read it and diagrams are terrible. I think it is from a book page roughly 82.

    Are you talking about a snowball block or something similar?

    Here's a baby quilt pattern with charm pack and triangles: http://www.modabakeshop.com/2009/03/...aby-quilt.html
    Also, here's a page of other free patterns using charm packs: http://cheryl.thisbe.org/Patterns.html#charm
    A little more description of the project would be helpful.

    That's exactly what I was thinking; a snowball block. Here is a video showing a snowball quilt made out of charm squares. at the :34 second point, the quilter shows how to make the blocks. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dhSWmkxfczU

    editted to add: here's an even better video http://www.sewingbox.com.au/pages/Snowball-Block.html

    Here's a good picture of a snowball bl




    Assemble the Snowball Blocks. (yellow shading is used to make large centers more visible in diagram)
    Janet Wickell


    Sew the Snowball Blocks


    1. Draw a diagonal line from corner to corner on the reverse side of each Snowball tip square. The lines will remain in the quilt, so use a marker that will not bleed with dampness. Pencil or chalk are good choices. See Diagram A.
    2. Align a marked corner square with a large Snowball center square, right sides together and edges matched. Sew the two together along the marked diagonal line. See Diagram B.
    3. Trim away excess fabric at the Snowball block corner, leaving an approximate 1/4" seam allowance. See Diagram C.
    4. Repeat, sewing a square to the remaining three corners of the Snowball block. Press seam allowances outward at the corners to complete the block. Press carefully to avoid stretching the corners out of shape. Diagram C.
      • Some quilters do not trim the tips at all. Leaving them intact puts an extra layer of fabric under block corners, but seems to add some stability, so try it both ways to see which method you prefer.

    No it is not a snowball. Take One 5 inch square thenplace 21/2inch square in one corner and then another one in the opposite corner. Fold diagonally on both and sew the cut to 1/4inch.
    Hope you follow

    Look at the snowball block posted, could you just use the two diagonal squares and leave off the other two?
