Quarter Snow Ball is the first block in the book. It’s perfect for new quilters as well as experienced ones.
So easy yet so versatile. You will find 1 quilt pattern featuring this block in the book and 3 illustrated quilt pattern variations.
This block has so many possibilities that after you do the 4 variations I’m sure you’ll be able to find a few more and make your own quilt design.
Today we’re joined by Jen of Patterns by Jen, Lorinda of Laurel, Poppy and Pine, Kate of Seams like a dream, Sandra of Sandra Healy Designs, Moira of Quilt Design Duo, Lynn of Puppy Girl Designs, Sarah of Sarah Goer Quilts and Tammy of Tamarinis.
They’ve made blocks and full quilts using this block. Don’t forget to check their fantastic quilts and blocks they’re made for this occasion as well as read their experience with the book.
After you check their posts enter their own giveaways!
This giveaway is CLOSED.
Today we have a great giveaway. When I designed Tutti-frutti I did so with Denyse Schmidt’s modern solids 5” charm pack in mind.
Free Spirit fabrics, who also provided most of the fabrics for the quilts in my book, is kindly giving away Denyse’s 100 charm pack and 1 yard of solid cream to make this Tutti-frutti. Isn’t that great?
To win, tell us in the comments which one is your favourite quilt made with this block: Arrowhead, Sweet Bows, Tutti-frutti or Sun Dunes.

Order my book Turnabout Patchwork
“Turnabout Patchwork. Simple quilts with a twist” is all about playing with blocks – making a block, slicing it up, and turning or repositioning the pieces to make a completely different block (sometimes two smaller blocks) to yield endless quilt tops.
