Turnabout patchwork, Quarter Snowball quilt block.

Quarter Snow Ball is the first block in my book Turnabout patchwork. It’s perfect for new quilters as well as experienced ones

So easy yet so versatile. You will find 1 quilt pattern featuring this block in the book and 3 illustrated quilt pattern variations.

This block has so many possibilities that after you do the 4 variations I’m sure you’ll be able to find a few more and make your own quilt design.

Today we’re joined by Jen of Patterns by Jen, Lorinda of Laurel, Poppy and Pine, Kate of Seams like a dream, Sandra of Sandra Healy Designs, Moira of Quilt Design Duo, Lynn of Puppy Girl Designs, Sarah of Sarah Goer Quilts and Tammy of Tamarinis.

They’ve made blocks and full quilts using this block. Don’t forget to check their fantastic quilts and blocks they’re made for this occasion as well as read their experience with the book.

Order 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.

  1. I love all of them,it is really hard to pick a favorite!
    If I must make a choice it would have to be arrowhead.


  2. I absolutely LOVE the Tutti-Fruitti Quilt With Bright, Bodacious and Flamboyant Color & Style! GORGEOUS! What a nice quilt to wrap around a loved one! ❤


  3. Teresa: It is very difficult to choose . . . I love absolutely all your blocks. I like handmade patchwork. I watch all of your videos and then I convert the inch measurements to centimeters.


  4. Oh the Tutti Fruiti looks like a fun one to make. But they all are so lovely hard to pick just one….
