We’re still early in the year and I hope you’re keeping up to your new year’s resolution of learning to quilt!
To this end, this is a very easy block you can make quite quickly and use it on its own or together with other blocks such as nine-patch blocks. Today I’ll demonstrate the construction.
How to make an easy snowball quilt block
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.
This method “wastes” a bit of fabric but it doesn’t need to, you can make a half square triangle at the same time with the excess fabric and use it on another quilt or use the HSTs on the back of the quilt.
