Snowball of Love

Snowball Love Front

I was getting itchy to cut into my new Amy Butler Love fat quarters. So once again, I stopped everything else I was working on and created a baby snowball quilt. I wanted to do something that would showcase the big prints. My favorite is the orange and purple fabric in the middle snowball – love it!

The back is simply strips of the fabric – again in an effort to display the large prints. This line is really growing on me the more I look at it. I’m definitely going to go back to the quilt store and buy some more!

This quilt is a 21″ square and was quilted free motion. I used a couple of the prints for the binding. I think it’d be quite cute in a baby nursery or on a tabletop.

    I love (haha) those prints together like that. I think the tiny size shows them off very well. I’d put it on my table. 🙂

    This is a great way to show off that fabric! I’m getting ready to start a snowball quilt, so I’m happy to see this example.

    How fast did you whip that up! I’ve hardly begun sewing together the pieces for my quilt and here you are churning out another one!

    Very cute! That’s a perfect way to showcase awesome prints – I may need to do a smaller version for my tea table decorations. Aren’t little quilts just the most fun – instant gratification at its best!
