I have been looking forward to the Quilt Festival for a while now. I have been waiting to show off my newest finished quilt until this week because it is my new favorite!
I used the fabric line "Amelia" from Timeless Treasures. This fabric is a couple of years old but when I first saw it, I knew I needed it. So I bought up enough to make a quilt, although I had no idea what pattern I wanted to use it for. After a few years of going back and forth on designs, I finally settled on a simple snowball quilt. I wanted something that showed off the fabric as much as possible, and the snowball block seemed to work best.Each center block is 7.5" square with 2.5" square corner brown squares. I added a 1" brown border and a 5" leaf border to finish it off. I used the remaining scraps to bind the quilt. I love scrappy bindings! Overall it is a perfect snuggle quilt for the couch.
For the backing I used what I had left over of the prints and brown fabric. For the quilting, I did an all over stippling with loops in a teal green thread. A little different from the normal stippling which made the quilting a little more interesting. It took me a few years to finally decide what to make with this fabric but I'm so glad that I waited. I love how this turned out! It is definitely my newest favorite quilt!
If you'd like to make a snowball quilt, here is a great tutorial that can help.
