What's a Snowball Block? It's any block that has the 4 corners cut off at a 45 degree angle. ...
that's the tricky part..They just LOOK like they are cut off at a 45 degree angle!
Let me walk you through it step by step.
Take one block. This one is made up of 5 pieces, but is essentially an 8" square. In order to make the corners look like they are at 45 degrees you will need 4, 2" squares.
Press the 2" square in half diagonally. Or, you can draw a diagonal line on the wrong side of the fabric.
TA DA..you've completed all 4 corners...press the corners to the outer edge.
Trim the corner seams to 1/4". The block is complete.
Now you can set them into your favorite design and make a quilt. Look at all those snowball blocks....whew....there were a lot of them! The pattern is our own Mulberry Lane...
you can find it in the SASH GALS shop.
Relax, these little guys are fun and easy to make. They melt right into another fabric....
see, no tricks - just pretty cool construction.
Have a great week! We're off to Portland for Spring Quilt Market .
I will be posting pictures when I get back. Can't wait to show you what's new this Spring - Stay tuned.
