Botannical Fabrics For Bold Snowball Blocks

A Quilt Block Of Flowers

Snowballs incorporated into this 18 inch block provides a spectacular display of a feature floral fabric. Sort through stash or scraps to find coordinating fabric for the X blocks to accent every colour in the pallette!


An amazingly easy block to construct. Five Snowballs are 6 inches providing an array of botanicals for the project. Assemble together with four X blocks to make a total display of an 18 inch nine patch. A single quilt block makes a floral throw pillow, or assemble more for a striking quilt.
