This was a major quilt purchase I made while attending the Houston International Quilt Festival a few years back. I purchased 3 quilt tops while traveling around the area. I made a stop at an antique store in Waxahatchi, Texas.
This quilt top was such a great find. Sometimes you see the same fabrics appear in numerous quilts but this one has such unique ones. It makes it very special. In my retirement I will have plenty of tops to quilt to keep me busy!

I found it on Pinterest too. Most likely the reason for so many views.
In all my years of looking at quilts in books, magazines, online, I have never come across a snowball quilt made in this exact manner.

I think hand stitching this pattern would be the easiest. Can you imagine manipulating those curves on a sewing machine?
Purple Roses….. Vintage fabric at it’s best
Pretty blue – this is the best blue ever!
Black and green stripes
The stripes come together to form an X
Safety pin fabric – the best
