    Awesome! Thanks so much!!!

    Yes, that's how I was taught to do it, too.

    If you want to see a really wonderful use of snowballs, go check out Missouri Star Quilt Co's latest tutorial on YouTube. The snowballs form a jar, then a lid is put on. The fabrics used are all specialty prints. Perfect for kids. Jenny calls it an I Spy Jar Quilt. I have never made snowballs before, but sure appreciate all your tips.
