    Hi - there have been a few threads about snoball quilts, so I thought I would post mine which is now ready for binding. This was the easiest quilt I have ever pieced (unlike my GOM I really like simple!!). I will make another one, this time using something darker for the snoballs, as I think the lighter colour I used is a bit overpowering - plus my quilting stitches are not so crash hot, so I need to "hide" them a bit! My friend made a similar quilt, using florals, and it is absolutely gorgeous! I'm going to try an "I spy" next, using different fabrics of course.

    The pattern I had was called Kansas Dugout - another easy peasy block! I only did top and bottom, because I wanted to make the quilt longer.

    Just two blocks - snoball and ninepatch. The corners on the snoball have to match the top and bottom outside squares on the nine patch to get the criss cross effect. I didn't call it easy peasy for nothing!

    your snoball is wonderful and I like the lighter snoball effect. I just finished my own creation with these two blocks and it is one of the fastest quilts I ever made. I will post a pic' of it soon. Mine is on point which makes a quilt grow real fast without a lot of piecing. The center of my snoball blocks has tea cups as a focus. Watch to see it!. I really like your version!

    Her border is one snowballed block turned back and forth.

    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.

    I love the snowball/9-patch. It's one of my favorites. And yours is absolutely gorgeous!
