    Flowering Snowball

    This is what I'm working on now using some of my scraps. It's not all that hard. I just have to pin a lot on those curves.

    I usually pin my blocks to the curtain in the living room. I sometimes make changes when I see something that doesn't look right to me. Each block is 12 inches. I haven't decided how large I want to make the quilt. Just having fun with the scraps right now.

    Pretty, pretty! Love the optical illusion of circles. It's smart to make use of the curtain as a design wall, too.

    That is going to be lovely when finished. Love the little red connector square in the middle of each one.

    A great pattern. Could you put a tutorial together for this? What order go you sew the curved pieces? I would love to try it. A great way to use up scraps and a 12" block will build into a large quilt real fast.

    I like what you are doing with this.

    I do not believe I have ever seen this as a scrappy, but this is going to be a winner. The red connector squares are perfect and tie everything together.

    Thank you everyone. I will see if I can find the website I found this pattern on. I just printed it out then drew it on some plastic template I got at Hancock's. I have a lot of different scraps from everyone and their grandmothers. haha I know if I can do this, any of you can too. Have a great day everyone!

    I recently repaired a vintage quilt with that pattern, which had been hand pieced. It was hard to let that one go! Yours is gorgeous!
