    Finally, this weekend I worked on this quilt top to finish it with my plan for wonky snowballs. Moments before I started sewing them, I drew a picture of 3 of them and what I wanted to achieve, but after doing 68 snowballs, after awhile, any angle works great on each of the 4 corners as long as they are different. It was fun! I loved doing these! If you try them, just make sure nothing meets right and you'll have a great WSB! It's hard to see the quilt from this distance, so I'll show closeups. And you know me, I love to do that! The last pic is a great surprise in the quilt and just shows my love for God's stars! Have fun making WS and WSB!! :D

    the stars seem to light up in this pic!

    plaid and striped snowballs added interest

    Do you see the heart in the background? This was a surprise to me! p.s. focus your eyes on the white/lt. fabs and follow the arrow at the top of the pic, down the left side of the heart to the bottom of the pic, you see the point of heart, and then up the rt. side a little. Do you see it now?

    LOVE it.
    And the stripe is so interesting. It works as a perfect calm counter to the fabulous wild scrappy stars.
    And the border treatment is perfect.
    Outstanding job!!

    eta: I think the notion of scrappy is sometimes (unfairly) attributed to something that was just thrown together.
    The more I look at this quilt, it's clear how much thought when into the placement of pretty much every "scrap." It really is a great quilt.

    Now I see it!! The square on point sure does resemble seminole patchwork! Thank you, QuiltnNan! I was trying to think what the border reminded me of but all I could see was flagstones!

    :-D :-D :-D

    Thank you so much, MTS, for such nice compliments!! Scrappy has received a bum name over time, but I try to give it some class. I'm an artist and I hope my work reflects an artistic expression. Only a true artist can see what's thrown together and what is not. Each piece selected comes naturally, from a natural ability, and is difficult to teach to a non-artistic person. As they say, art is in the eye of the beholder! I'll finish it off with a red plaid binding to give it a dark frame and tie it together with the plaid of the sashing. I really enjoyed this one and think it comes closest to that scrappy that I wanted to achieve as my best yet; something I've always wanted to do!

    :-D :-D :-D
