Flowering Snowball Quilt

Today I am so excited to share my newest finish, a Flowering Snowball Quilt!!!   This quilt has been on my list to make for about as long as I have been making that list and I am just so thrilled to finally get to cross it off the list!!! 


And up, it is in classic Black, Red, and White again ;)   You will have to forgive me, I know that this is the third quilt in that color combination that I have shared in the last few weeks, quilt 1 being here, and quilt 2 behind here.   I was on a mission to finish up a secret sewing plan before Christmas this year with these, and I am thrilled to say, this rounds out that plan ;)  So we will be back to our usual variation of color now ;)    But honestly, you can't ever go wrong with Black, Red, and White right ;)  It is so striking!!!


The reason this quilt has been on my to make list for so long was because I knew the cutting was going to be tedious.   So when I got my new AccuQuilt  GO! Fabric Cutter  a few weeks ago that I shared about back here  the   Flowering Snowball die   was the first die I wanted to play with.  And it was so much fun, so easy, and so accurate!!!   And I have to say, having those little notches made lining up the curves to sew a breeze. I shared over here about the 3 pin method I use to sew curves, and I had these blocks together in no time.  


And you better believe, I have lots more Flowering Snowball quilts starting to percolate in my brain.  It really was so easy and fast, and I just love the finished look of this design.   The circles in the red are my favorite part, they just pop!!!


When it came time to quilt mine, I choose to quilt an all over echoed paisley design.  This is one of the first things I learned to quilt and is still an all time favorite.   I did a little Video Tutorial over here of how I quilt this, just in case you want to check it out.     And I know I said it in the other quilt posts as well, but I just love the red quilting on these!!!  It just pops on the white and black and really ties the color scheme together.  So fun!!!


And that is my Flowering Snowball Quilt!!!  It measures 56" x 68" so it is a great lap size to cuddle up with.   It's going to have a little applique added to it this afternoon and then it will be all ready for giving ;)   Which of course, is another reason why I want to make some more, with at least one to stay at home for me to snuggle with, tee hee hee ;)


Thanks so much for popping in today and every day!!!  I am so very grateful to get to share my love of quilting with you all in my little corner of the internet.   

I hope you all have a very Happy Quilting Day!!!!

Linking this finish up to Amanda's, (which is her final linky, we will miss you Amanda!!!) Sarah's, and Myra's :)

  3. One of my someday quilts to make, and I love the red, black, & white quilts. I'm hoping my sister has these dies for her cutter, and am on the hunt for a BasicX ruler. You're such an inspiration/instigator!
