Flowering Snowball Quilt - A Finished Quilt

I hope you don't mind if I bombard you with an epic gallery of photos of the finished Flowering Snowball Quilt. I am thrilled with how this quilt turned out and happy to have ticked this one off my bucket list, although I think there may be more Flowering Snowball Quilts in my future ... I have already invested in smaller - 6" Flowering Snowball block - templates!

I spent much time thinking about how to quilt this quilt and when the time came to get started I was still undecided but simply had to make a start - creating a foundation of intersecting lines first, then adding more lines of stitching in between. Once I was happy with the spacing and texture created by the closely spaced straight lines of quilting I ditch-stitched around each individual circle and semi-circle along the quilt edge. Stitching my way around each circle was quite the task!

For the back of the quilt I have used my go-to backing fabric ~ Newsprint by Carrie Bloomston from the Story collection ...

... and couldn't resist but finished the quilt with my signature black/white stripe binding fabric by Timeless Treasures:

  1. Bombs away. Never too many pictures. Your quilts always amaze me, they are beautiful. I love your signature backing and binding. I must confess I have used your strip binding on many quilts and always give your credit for my inspiration.

  2. It's remarkable. I have the templates to make one, but I think I'm MORE intimidated after seeing yours! Beautiful!

    1. Go for it! - it isn't as hard as it looks. Take your time planning the fabric placement and working out what piecing method works best for you. Enjoy!

    Here, my momma, that I love so dearly, is leaving this earth and going to Heaven. After two week of loving her and caring for her, I am ready to accept God's plan. She has had a long life.♥️

  20. Love it. I particularly like how you planned the colours.
    I was not sure about the teeny cirves of the 6-inch templates, but then I have 3-inch drunkards path templates and they are fine. What is there to be nervous about?
