As the saying goes, one thing leads to another. Yesterday when I added the little squares to the center of the snowball blocks in mom's design, I thought to myself that I wished I could do that with my snowball blocks. I had thought they stood out on the quilt too much, just a big old white space. Nothing wrong with that, but it was bothering me. So yesterday it came to me...I could add squares to my snowball blocks, if I appliqued them on. Even better...I could add them on point.
So I laid some out on my design wall and look at the difference! I truly love this quilt now...it just seems more balanced to me without those big white spaces. And this will use up a few more of my scrap squares too. I'll probably use raw edge applique to attach the squares...I haven't decided for sure yet.
And one more thing...I was unable to reply to some comments recently regarding swapping scraps. Would Patty, Edie and Mary Jo please email me using the link on my sidebar. All three of you came up as no reply bloggers so I had no way to contact you. Thanks! :0)
