For my sweet Sister who lives 1800 kilometres away from me!
For those of you who are living in a country where it snows, I realise you are probably very sick of seeing snowballs as you are coming out of winter. I promise these snowballs are a lot brighter, very cheery, and will eventually make you warm! This is how we throw snowballs around here:
Take one large square and four small squares (I cut them 6" for the larger square and 2 1/4" for the smaller).
design for my snowball quilt is finished and I'm very impatiently waiting for the postie to bring me some fabric so I can get started on the applique (I didn't have quite enough for the applique). I decided to go with a bit of a fern leaf look....this is the applique pattern for the larger square:
On a different note, thanks for all those asking about my shoulder. It is still very sore after work and computer work, so I may not reply to comments yet for awhile (I love reading them though, so keep them coming, I truly appreciate them), luckily stitching and even cutting out seem to be different motions and therefore don't seem to hurt my shoulder. I am still being careful though not to do too much too soon.
Now if you want to see a beautiful snowball quilt, the wonderful Nedra at Cactus Needle Quilts did a lovely post on my unfinished snowball (thank you Nedra), and showed her stunning Kaffe snowball (I love Kaffes!). Nedra based her colour choices for her snowballs on the desert where she lives, I think it is stunning!
