    easy is what I look for...where can I find this pattern????

    Well, I like the white and the contrast.

    fYI---Snowball quilts are not "that" easy. The one I made involved a lot of squareing up that I didn't anticipate since it's supposed to be such an "easy" block.

    I could really use a fast easy project for a change. I'll bookmark this for sure. Really love your quilt! Hope you enjoy making many more of them.

    It is great. Just love those that are easier but just as nice as the more difficult.

    Its just a plain old nine patch alternated with a snowball. The outside corners of the nine patch are the same fabric as the diagonal corners on the snowball. So simple, but really affective.

    There are so many of us that love your quilt. Put me in line for the pattern also, PLEASE.
    You did a fantastic job....sure doesn't look easy to me but I am new at this and unsure of myself..
    Thanks for the picture and the hints.
    Guess I don't know how to do a snowball block.

    Very nice quilt and I can't wait to see the on-point version, too.

I really like your version!

    This is a lovely quilt. We all learn from each piece we make. Progress, not perfection is my motto.

    Yoda, who was on my first Avatar, is a Maltese Shitz Zsu (I hope that's spelt correctly) cross. He is the one with the big eyes. I have now changed my Avatar to give LuLu her 15 minutes of fame. She is a Lhasa Apso.

    Yes, except only two diagonal corners instead of four, and the two are a bit bigger. Easy peasy!!! If anyone has any other easy pieced borders, I would be very interested. I'm not so good with really small pieces.
    here is a link to some borders i found and have bookmarked.
