A quilt for a new niece

I had to wait until my sister’s shower was over to show off this snowball quilt for a little girl due in September.


I love pink and yellow, and I had fun making the snowball blocks. I had never done an entire quilt of them before. Octagons x 36.

For the back, I chose the boldest fabric. The quilt top was wider than WOF so I added a scrappy strip to bring in some of the prints from the front. I like that the front is more traditional and the back more modern. I do wish I hadn’t centered the strips, but I really love the quilt as a whole.Image

And here’s the binding– I used the starbursts, which have a tiny bit of purple in them.


I’m so excited to finish my next quilt, one that I can hopefully share with the Modern Quilt Guild at the August meeting. Until then…
