Last week I posted the last pink block I was using for the baby quilt I am making….it was not my last pink snowball though. While posting on Instagram a friend requested I send the quilt to her…I could not oblige but as a compromise I said I would make her a pillow.
So this weekend I sat down and designed Ellen a snowball block. I must admit I was a little influenced by the New York Beauty blocks I have been making…and I came up with this.
It is a little more complex than some of the snowball blocks but I love how it turned out. The block consists of 56 pieces but came together really quickly. I of course had to throw in some dinosaurs and my beloved Aussie kangaroo print.
Now the block you are looking at is 16 inches big. I enlarged the pattern for the cushion and will add a black and white border around the block to have finished size of 18 inches. So this weeks pattern comes in two sizes… the original 12 inch block for those that want it as an option to go with the other blocks…Ellens Snowball 12 Inch pattern. And just in case you are interested in doing a pillow version like me the 16 inch pattern (which comes in two pieces/pdfs)…Ellens Snowball Pattern A and Ellens Snowball Pattern B.
