Snowballs for a Nursery

I finally finished putting my snowball quilt top together last night and I am so happy with how it turned out.  I wanted to do something a little different from a traditional snowball quilt, so I just started sketching and this is what I came up with.


I used three different sizes of snowballs- 12 inch, 8 inch, and 4 inch, and constructed the quilt in sections.  I like the way the snowballs "float" across the quilt, making it difficult to see where the sections are.  I think when it is quilted the illusion will be even cooler, that's what I'm hoping for anyway.

This quilt is destined for a twin bed that is part of a sweet nursery, all decorated in shades of pink and gray.  I can't wait to finish it!

  24. Such a great pattern. So different than anything else I have seen. Are you going to be selling this pattern?

  25. Love the randomness of the snowballs and I'm a huge fan of anything paired with gray. Even though it's for a nursery, I think it's a quilt that can grown with the child through the grade school years as well. Girly, but not childish. Love it!
