    Snowballs from a gray sky

    These are stacked 4 patch posey blocks that I snowballed the corners. Then added sashing to just one side, so they would be offset. I didn't have much fabric left, so I did wonky squares for the border.

    Beautiful quilt! I really want to do a quilt with a grey background. I think it is such a refreshing change from white, white on white and cream

    I love that idea for 4 patch posy! And your border is wonderful.

    What a great idea for a 4pp. I like the kaliedoscope type blocks. This will go into my idea list. Beautiful.
