Block 2 – Snow ball quilt block – Mysteries Down Under quilt

This is the second block in the Mysteries Down Under quilt.

By the way, the blocks aren’t assembled in order. So as you make them, put them away in a safe place until all of them are done.

Snowball is a classic block and it’s perfect for beginners. Check the colour below if you’re using the suggested palette.

My book Turnabout Patchwork

“Turnabout Patchwork. Simple quilts with a twist” is all about playing with blocks – making a block, slicing it up, and turning or repositioning the pieces to make a completely different block (sometimes two smaller blocks) to yield endless quilt tops.

Buy individual chapters of my book

Now that my publisher is going out of business I have bought the rights to publish my book. Now you can download individual chapters. Each digital download is a bundle with 4 quilt patterns in it.

As well as the instructions and fabric needs to make the blocks you’ll find a section on quiltmaking basics at the end of the pattern that discusses:

  • Tools
  • Squaring up blocks
  • Borders
  • Assembly and quilting
  • Binding

  1. Not sure if my post to fb made it to your fb page so attaching here.

    I’m using my daughter’s bridesmaid dresses. Its a bit tricky using satin but am using the lightest of stabiliser to hold the satin.

    Looking forward to sewing along with you. Will be on the road travelling in about 3 weeks time but will take my sewing gear with me (including my machine) so I can keep up with the mystery!!!

    Blessings Pam.😀
