We are in week two of the SNOWBALL FIGHT! I posted my fabric pics over on Instagram, but I thought you might like to see them here, too.
The challenge is using a snowball quilt block. So, what is a snowball block? It has a solid center and four triangles on all four of the corners. The triangles to do not meet in the center. They typically cover 1/3 of each adjacent side. See below!!
A snowball block can be found in many different quilt designs. It looks like a snowball and is often used to make a snowman. It looks round so often becomes a ball or circle. It will be fun to see what all the designers come up with for their SNOWBALL FIGHT design! We will see the reveals in two weeks. One more week of sneak peeks, then reveal on Feb. 22nd.
A hint on my challenge, I’ll be paper piecing. So here are two more tips when foundation paper piecing. (By the way, the photos are not my challenge design! <grin>)
#1 – Use card stock or even a greeting card to fold the paper back on the seam line.
#2 – Trim the excess seam allowance with “Add-A-Quarter” tool. No affiliation, just a great handy tool when foundation paper piecing!
