Make the Floral Snowball Quilt Blocks
Snowball Quilt Block Assembly
- Draw a diagonal line from one corner to the opposite corner on the reverse side of each of your 2-1/4" x 2-1/4" squares.
A white or yellow (or other light) pencil will come in handy. You can also create a temporary lines using a tool that creases fabric, such as a hera marker, which slides easily down the edge of a ruler.
- Align a small square in each corner of the floral square as shown, right sides together and edges matched. Sew a seam on each diagonal line. Try sewing a scant seam by placing your seam along the side of the line that's closest to the corner.
- Cut through both layers 1/4" past each seam line to create the seam allowance. Place a warmed iron straight down on top of the unpressed block to set the seams. Do not move the iron back and forth.
- Carefully press the Snowball corners right side up, seam allowances towards the black corners (the direction isn't critical, but the dark allowances could be visible if pressed towards the floral).
The Snowball quilt block should measure 6-1/2" x 6-1/2".
