    Here is my quilt from a no stress quilt along. I stepped out of my "comfort zone" and used black Kona for the background.Just simple snowballs and ninepatches. I am thinking of doing a scalloped border after quilting it.

    It is just 6 1/2" blocks. Corners for the snowballs are 2.5" squares. The ninpatches are also 2.5" squares. Easy Peasy!
