Beginning of the Snowball Quilt

Today I began the Snowball quilt for the quilt challenge.  My dear friend Chris and I are both participating in the challenge, so we thought we would take the day for starting our quilts.  Even though we weren't quite as productive as we would have liked to be, it was still a great day of figuring out the pattern, cutting, and creating our first blocks.  I finally decided on my color: GREEN.  Anyone who has known me for any length of time knows that green is my favorite color. Over the years I have acquired a lot of green fabric, so it was only natural that I choose to use all the green from my stash in this quilt.  Chris decided to use red, which I think will be stunning.

They would make a lovely Christmas quilt if we put them together!


  1. Yay!! It looks so good on your blog.

  2. What a great start! I have only finished 150 of my half square triangles, so you are way ahead of me. Love the green and red together!

  3. The green is a great idea! Great at Christmastime and all throughout the year. Your and Chris' quilts will have to get together and fraternize for the holidays.
