Having already purchased a Simply Color layer cake, I wanted to use it without any waste, so I asked hubby to make me a new template. After a few calculations, it was peddle to the floor!
My stack of snowballs grew pretty quick and I started to see the pattern come together.
I made 12 blocks consisting of 8 snowballs each. The quilt measures approximately 50 x 65
Once again my daughter and I went out in search of interesting places to take a few pictures. I love this old shed.
This particular photo shoot cost me a medium French Vanilla AND a box of doughnuts!
Across the road there are two old rail cars so we went there too.
This is such a pretty line of fabric. I'm glad I used it for this quilt. I'm thinking this pattern elevates the humble snowball to a whole new level.
Thanks for stopping by again. Happy stitching to you!
It's beautiful and so are the settings. You got off pretty cheap on the photo shoot. ;-)
I'm thinking your quilt elevates the Snowball to a new level also. Beautiful! Love the photos too.
This is beautiful! I love your photo shoots! Yay for your sweet daughter!
That's a great quilt! And I love the photos too! (Sorry, that deleted comment was me signed in on the wrong account :)!
Beautiful...and excellent photography choices too...
Wow!! Awesome quilt!!!! Beautiful pictures too!
What a lovely way to show off those snowball blocks - and what a perfect place for your picture!
How lovely Carla!!! You are so talented. This quilt is very fun and happy!
Snowballs are the best! Love your version!
Looks beautiful! What a great pattern for showing off Simply Color!
How do you hang up your quilts on buildings and things like that? Giant pins?
Wow, it's lovely! A completely new layout for snowball blocks.
Just gorgeous. Love the setting you've used for the snowball block.
two thumbs up for the shed! its awesome with the colors of the quilt!
I adore this quilt! You've just made picking a design for my (not-yet-started) Christmas quilt that much harder!
So beautiful Carla!! And, I just love where you took your photos!! ;) xo Heather
What a fantastic quilt!
Carla, your quilt is so beautiful and your photos fantastic! I haven't seen this pattern before (?) and it's really wonderful! x Teje
You are going to have to negotiate a little on the price of your helper! LOL. The quilt looks fabulous!
Carla, this is such a lovely, modern take on a snowball quilt. I absolutely love it!
It is so pretty and the pics were worth the donuts ;-)
Fabulous quilt Carla and great photos too!
So gorgeous, and your "location" shots are fantastic!
And... you did it again! Beeyootifull !!
Love how your quilt came out! The fabrics and layout are great :)
This is such a "happy" quilt! Love the pics, too!
You have just provided me with two wonderful ideas; one for using up my scrap squares to create my own circle of colour and another for watching for those interesting locales for photographing quilts. Wonderful post!!!
Gorgeous quilt!! I love the pattern and fantastic photos :)
Very fun pattern! I love the photo shoot too - worth every sip & bite!
So lovely Carla. I have always been a fan of snow ball. It was one of the first patterns i did. I think you are right, this pattern and fabric brings the humble snowball into the day of "modern". Hope your holiday preps are going smoothly!
I love the snowball quilt and the photography is beautiful!
Very cool pattern, nice twist on the snowball block. I love how it came together. I really like that fabric line too!
I have 2 charm packs of Simply Color (I keep wanting to put a "U" in Color...!) That fabric is perfect for this pattern! I'll be keeping my eyes open for it.
What a great pattern - it's amazing how a simple snowball block can look so elegant. Awesome job on the photo shoot - y'all did a great job scouting out creative locations.
Love it! Trying to decide what to do with my charm pack I am hoarding!
Oh, how I love photographing my quilts, as well! I just love the rail car....we could get into some serious fun hanging out together....two Carlas!!
I LOOOOOVE this! Such a great pattern! I must try!
