Quiltsmart Snowball

This elegantly beautiful quilt is made without ever sewing two curved pieces of fabric together.  Child's play?  You betcha!  In 1999, a fourth grade class made all the blocks for a twin quilt in a handful of hours.  This book by Arlene Koble provides complete step-by-step instructions and yardages for a wide range of sizes and variations..      

Here's how it is made:    

 Cut fabrics and interfacing. Stitch 4-patch pieces.


Stitch interfacing to the fabric

Trim seam allowances.   Turn right side out.

Fuse appliqués to background square.

Zigzag stitch appliqués to background.


Trim away excess interfacing and 4-patch fabric.


Assemble blocks in rows and columns,  Quilt and bind.



Color variation:  Beachball.  Details in book.


Bed sizes are presented with the option of one narrow border or a wider triple border.  Twin sizes shown.
