Fall Quilt Festival

It's time for the Fall Quilt Festival at Amy's Creative Side.  I've decided to feature my Snowball quilt completed this summer (June 2010).

Pattern: snowball with diamond border (squares set on point)
Fabrics:  various designer prints, batiks in border and corners of snowballs, Amy Butler print on back
Inspiration:  Kaffe Fassett, although I didn't follow a specifc pattern

It started out like this:

Eventually, a quilt emerged.  It took almost a year to complete the piecing and quilting.

I free-motion quilted in a swirling pattern.

Thanks for stopping by!
