    Thanks everyone! The blocks are 6" finished. I wanted them on the small side so the pattern would be apparent. I like the secondary pattern created by the white, it makes little "X's". My aunt made the most delightful thank you note about it, she's 84 and a very classy lady. I didn't think I liked snowballs, but this quilt made me change my mind.

The "snowballs" are 6.5" squares that have 2.5" white squares laid on each corner and sewn diagonally. You cut off the excess fabric and it makes each square have white corners. You sew the 6.5" snowballs alternately with the 9-patches, and viola! 6" finished blocks, and make as many as you need. This is a lap quilt for a tiny lady, so it's not all that big.
