This weeks block is a variation snowball and is for the larger
applique that we will do in the coming weeks.
We make three snowball blocks.
We need: Three 8 1/2in squares for background blocks
and Three lots of Twenty Four 2 1/2in squares.
Cut your three background blocks.
With four 2 1/2in squares draw a diagonal line on
the wrong side of the square.
Placing on the four corners like above. Stitch on the diagonal line
Trim each sewn square to a 1 4/in from the sewn line.
Press the corners out like
Next take eight 2 1/2in squares and place next to your background square
checking that there are no fabrics the same touching.
Sew these in a row for each side.
Stitch to the sides of the block. Press after you have sewn them on.
Next place the remaining 12 squares top
and bottom of where you want them to go.
Stitch to the top and bottom of the block.
Then make two more of these blocks
as we need three for the quilt.
They can be the different fabrics as it makes it look more
scrappy if you don't duplicate the placing of the squares.
