Snowball Block & Quilts

  Quilts made with Snowball Blocks
  plus Maple Leaf or Friendship Star 
These quilt tops show some of the ways to combine Nine Patch and other blocks.

Maple Leaf blocks alternating with Snowballs


Maple Leaf Block alternating with Snowballs set on point.


Friendship Star plus Snowball Blocks
- corners of snowballs match the star fabric.


Friendship Star and Snowballs -
more scrappy than the quilt above,
 using different fabrics in the blues.


Make the star part stand out
by using a high contrast fabric.


On point set. Blend the star into the background
by matching it to the
corners of the snowball block.
Then use bright squares around the star.


On point set. A simple look
to this combination with only 3 fabrics.


On point set with sashing.
This has a dimensional layered look.
