flowering snowball, a finished (squishy!) quilt

I never shared my finished flowering snowball quilt!!

This was made simply for the pleasure of it.

I dreamed about this quilt for over 2 years,
and made it in just a little over 2 months.

I loved making the blocks.

(well - maybe I didn't love all of the seam ripping... ;-) 

I loved sewing them together.

And carefully pattern matching 
when I sewed up the scrumptious voile back.
(I used the same fabric that I used on Hadley's quilt 💗)

(okay. Maybe I only liked that part.
But I loved that Lily helped me...)

I really loved hand-quilting it.

and machine quilting it was an absolute breeze,

once I decided to simply (free motion) quilt
 a small circle where the blocks meet.

And of course, 
I loved adding the binding,

In short - I just really really love this quilt.

(a lot)

And I'll quite possibly make another FSQ someday. 


  1. I know I always say this, but THIS is one of my favorites! Next to mine of course...

  2. It is beautifully done - all that dreaming about it paid off!

  3. Oh, I could love that quilt also. I really want to pet it and squish it and....well, you get it.

  4. Wow, that is just beautiful, colourful, scrappy and hand quilted = perfect!!


You're leaving me a comment?? Oh goody! I love comments :-)
