Despite having a rather long FALQ3 list, I couldn't help but jump on the Flowering Snowball bandwagon. The tutorial I am using is Molly Flanders. I couldn't get her templates to print properly, so I drafted my own up using graph paper to make a 12" finished block. I had started pulling fabrics from my stash to use, but then Patches Indooroopilly restocked their 1930's prints, so naturally they made their way into this quilt.
It didn't take long before all of my wedges were cut out, and after buying 3 meters of off-white all of my background was cut out too. All 42 blocks are now complete and awaiting squaring off before they can be sewn together.
This quilt is so fantastically easy to put together. Because of the soft gradient of the curves, the only pins I need to use are two to line up the seams with the centre square. This means that I can chain piece curves! The only downside to this pattern is that I had to hand cut out all of the pieces, except for the 1" centre squares. A small and worthy inconvenience for such a lovely block!
Linking up with WIP Wednesday.
