Our newest kit, Vintage Snowballs, combines Vintage Noel & Sugar Rush from Blend Fabrics in a snowball block design. A snowball block is one of the easiest blocks you’ll ever make. Not only is it simple, it’s a fabulous block to show off medium to large scale prints. It’s perfect for these fabrics!
You can easily see the Vintage Ornaments, Snow Globes & perfectly cute Gingerbread Houses!
To add some interest I wanted to separate the snowball blocks with a sashing and candy stripe cornerstones.
Then I carried that stripe out to the binding to tie everything together.
Let’s not forget about the backing…it deserves just as much attention to detail. When I have time, I like to use most of my scraps up on the backing. Just randomly pieced and flying by the seat of my pants is usually the way I roll with my backs. I think this one turned out great!
I didn’t stop there though. You know I love Christmas fabric!! So I made up a couple of cute Allie dogs too. This is a pattern by Bunny Hill that’s in the shop. So stinkin’ cute and simple. Ive made these in the past as package toppers for your favorite puppy lover, or ornaments hung from the tree.
I made one when Daisy came to live with us. Her puppy nestles every year in my Christmas tree. Puppy’s first ornament. Too add the extra touch of cuteness, head over to Petsmart and have a few dog tags made to adorn their necks.
