Chubby Stars quilt along -- Step 5 -- snowballs

Pin It So... I didn't have anything new last week, and I still am not caught up.

Wanna know how many chain blocks I did?

Added to the one I made last week, and the 5 I made for my sample... I'm up to a whopping eleven.  Eleven is a little over 1/5 of what I need for my entire Cal-King quilt top.  Ai-ya!  Those blocks take forever!  I like 'em... but I need some (much faster to make) snowball blocks. :)

getting started

For review:

Snowball blocks -

one 8.5" focal print
four 2 7/8" contrast star print.

Sew diagonally corner to corner.


Trim... Press.

Make half your required blocks.

Had to put the Chubby Stars to the side for awhile - hope to get back to them next week!

I've still been in a funk this week. I did that one quilt top and that's it. Haven't even glanced at my machine. Hoping a burst of energy comes over me.
