This month's mini is aptly named Snowball2 because it was made from Dawn's quilt that I purchased at auction, took apart, and washed.
This is one 9-patch snowball block. I really like this Indigo/pink combo, don't you?
Many of the snowballs were pieced like this one.
The other 9-patch block reminds me of candystripes :)
I kept the quilting very simple--1/4" inside each snowball and around the little hourglasses in between. Also straight line quilting on both sides of the inner border and nothing in the outer one.
I had a wonderful print for the back. This mini is 25" wide by 16" long.
Don't forget to visit Wendy's blog on the 31st when she will be posting her mini along with links to all the other mini makers :) You can read all about her in the current issue of Quiltmania #151. Congratulations! We are so proud of you, Wendy!
Did I ever mention how much I miss my apron collection? Well, I really do! I had them all ironed and organized by category but there just wasn't any room when we moved so I sold each and every one. I posted about some of them a while back. Here is a link in case you are curious as to what I left behind.
But as they say--once a collector, always a collector. And I was at the right place at the right time--again!--when I picked up this c. 1900 apron at the thrift shop.
It is in perfect condition with lovely trim along the bottom edge . . .
. . . and the ends of the ties. It was only $1.00. Need I say more??
Same view as always but look at those clouds!
Have a wonderful week!
