Video tutorial: Snowball quilt block – beginner’s series

For 2018 I want to produce a series of videos on simple blocks for those of you starting out or thinking of starting so I can help you develop your quilting skills one block at a time.

Even if you’re not a beginner you may be able to find inspiration at the end of the video.

And while we’re not in 2018 yet, I thought it’d publish the first video in the series today as a late Christmas present from me to you.

So let’s start with Snowball.

Snowball is a very easy classic block, It’s so easy it only takes 10 minutes to make.

Snowball block is great to use with other blocks such as nine-patch blocks or just on its own. Today I’ll demonstrate the construction.

At the end you’ll find how you can use colour to make quite quite different quilt designs using just snowball blocks.
