Flowering Snowball Inspiration

Clevelandgirlie asked me about the Cross Block/Flowering Snowball and I looked through the blog to see if I could point her to the original quilt that inspired this project. The original post was on October 20, 2006. I guess that is the official project start date?


Definitely different coloration than mine. Definitely different. I don’t remember where I saw this quilt, so I don’t remember anything about it (hand pieced vs. machine pieced, hand quilted vs. machine quilted), but I still like it and am thrilled with the inspiration as well as the interest that people are taking in the project.

  1. I have to say, yours (even in it’s unfinished condition) is my hands down favorite. When I see pinks and blues together in a quilt, I go all queasy with flashbacks to the 70’s… Holly Hobbie dolls and ‘Little House’ dresses, and that weird ‘country-look’ that eventually spawned all those darn geese of the 80’s.
    Your quilt is much more invigorating… and I *will* be making one for myself one day, in a riot of polka-dots.
