Diane sent me a Second Chances Quilt challenge. She had started this quilt and even cut much of the fabric.
Hmmmm…what to do? I didn’t want to build the tesselated star, but the fabric was already in triangles and rectangles.
Sudden inspiration struck…the triangles could be saved. I could cut a 2″ square and a 1-1/2″ square from each one. Yes, there was some waste, but not as much waste as doing nothing with it at all.
I decided to make snowball blocks in two sizes–6″ and 3″.
Each 6″ blocks uses 4 2-1/2″ colored squares and 2 3″ colored squares. Also, 1 2-1/2″ background square and 2 3″ background squares.
Each 3″ block uses 4 1-1/2″ colored squares and 2 2″ colored squares. Also, 1 1-1/2″ background square and 2 2″ background squares.
I can make a more complete tutorial in the future if needed. The finished size of this one is 36″ square.
It was fun to explore such a different look with a print background.
The final result brings a smile to my face. It has already been gifted to a coworker who needed a smile, too.
