    Jimmy will enjoy this treasure hunt. The black of the snowball design makes the colors pop. Thanks for sharing your pictures!

    Piecefully yours,

    Love this quilt!! Can you tell me the steps you took to make the blocks? Might be something I'd like to try. I've only done handquilting, the machine scares me. Any advice would be great.
    Thanks,
    Sprenkle

    Hi Sprenkle,
    I admire anyone who hand quilts - WOW! That is something I haven't done. This particular pattern is a variety of 6 1/2" snowball blocks...I just picked one color for the corners so when you sew the blocks together it forms a dimond...I am making another one for my Grandaugher (Samantha) that has yellow corners (diamonds). I'll post a picture of that one when I get the binding on. Have fun collecting all the fabrics if you decide to make one, you probably have alot of the fabrics in your stash too!

    the corner squares are 2" x 2" and then sewn from corner to corner, trimmed slightly more that 1/4" and pressed towards the corner...like a snowball block?
