9 Patches and Snowballs
These are bad pictures I should redo them. This is a quilt I started last February. I had a sample block on my bulletin board for 2 years and finally started it. I wanted to use up lots of blue especially country blue but, not end up with a country blue quilt. So I hoped using navy, creams/tans, and browns would cancel it out. I'm pleased with the overall color. The quilt has 2 blocks. A 9 patch and a snowball. I put them together into a nine patch block. Then pieced the blocks together to make the top. I have a couple more seams and it will be done will post the finish top hopefully tomorrow.
The 9 patch uses a 2" square and measures 5".
The snowball starts with a 5 inch square with 2 inch square dog ears sewed across the center. Folded over to make HST corners.
