    Name this pattern

    Several years ago I saw a quilt hanging in a LQS and it was alternating snowballs and 9-patch. Anyone know the name of this pattern. Thought it might look cute in a baby quilt.

    To my knowledge it's known as the Snowball and 9-Patch. It's quite old. These two are from the 1900-1920 period, courtesy of the Quilt Index at MSU. They can be done on point

    Here is a baby quilt I did a few years ago. The fabric choices and placements, as in any quilt we make can make, snowball/9patch look sooo different.

    I like both, but really like the first one with the blocks set on point! Always like the simpleness of the 9-patch block....and love it set together with snowball blocks.

    Both those quilts are beautiful!

    Amazing how combing those two patterns makes a wonderful design.

    Here's one that I did. It's slightly different in that the 9 patch forms rings that circle the snowball blocks, changing the look.
