Floral Snowball Quilt PatternSnowball quilt blocks are a breeze to make, especially when you use quick piecing methods to assemble them. That's how we'll put together these pretty floral Snowballs.
A floral fabric is used in the center, open area of each Snowball block. Triangles in block corners are black to contrast with the florals. The instructions assume you will make a scrappy floral Snowball quilt from a variety of fabrics, but on page 3 you'll find yardages for a baby quilt that uses a single floral.
The small scale of the block is suitable for any quilt you want to make, from a wallhanging to a baby quilt to a bed cover.
The quilt is illustrated without sashing, but narrow strips would enhance the contrast between the assortment of floral fabrics.
Finished Block Size 6" x 6"
Remember that finished dimensions refer to the size a block will be after it is sewn into a quilt. The unfinished size (the size your block should be immediately after its assembly) is 6-1/2" x 6-1/2".
For Each Block
- One 6-1/2" x 6-1/2" square of a floral fabric. Fabric scale should be consistent with the size of the square -- not a small-scale floral that gets lost in the shuffle, but not a huge floral that would appear chopped-up in the finished block.
- Four 2-1/4" x 2-1/4" black squares.
