Flowering Snowball

I didn't actually snowball-along with Mary this summer, but I do have a flowering snowball quilt top.

When I made it several summers ago, I used a jelly roll of Sherbet Pips. 



Now that I have seen Mary's beautifully hand quilted version, I'd like to hand quilt this one. The back is already made, and now I'm at the point where my quilt-making usually comes to a dead halt--the basting step. I really need to work on that.

  1. This is so very sweet Cindy. I spray baste so it's quick

  2. Just spray basted a twin size in 20 minutes on my two banquet size folding tables pushed together.

  3. Love the colors against the grey. I spray baste too and have never done "regular" quilt basting.

  4. Well, I just taught basting in my "First Time Quiltmaking" class today! Wish you'd been there! We had lots of table space, and I encouraged everyone to help each other pin baste. It works so well to have a basting-buddy. You can sure accomplish a lot more, and best of all, friends make basting fun!

  5. Ooh! I love how your strip piecing gives this quilt a propellor effect. Very fun.
