My Dad passed away 2 years ago this months. My parents had just celebrated their 50 th Anniversary. They had known one another for well over that more like 60 +++++. They grow up in the same area, Mom played this his cousin.
Dad had been not feeling good and had started having pain in his feet. It just got worse and Mom took him to the ER and they admitted him to the hospital. We had just had their party and Dad keep calling to have me start their Golden Anniversary scrapbook

I also used Billie Lauders method for Ultimate scrappy 4 patch. http://mypassionforquilting.blogspot...ie-lauder.html

My Domestic and SEWMOR are two of those:

I'll make a few more like this and then some hot pads... those should be more fun because you can vary the blocks and the fabrics!
Edit: The sides aren't really crooked, I guess I just didn't lay it down flat on the floor properly...

This is a very old, classic pattern. It's 2.5" squares that are sewn together to make a 6.5" unfinished 9-patch. 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.
