How to Make a Snowball Quilt Block
As part of our Christmas in July party, to celebrate the release of our “Warm Wishes” fabric line with Riley Blake Designs, we thought it would be fun to share with you how to make one of our favorite winter themed quilt blocks…the Snowball Quilt Block!
Snowball Quilt Blocks are easy to make and so versatile to use paired with other quilt blocks to make darling quilt top patterns!
For example we use a snowball quilt block in our Picnic Quilt Pattern:
