I worked on two projects while I was at the quilting retreat this past weekend. The blocks shown in the photo above are from a pattern called Spice Cake by Mary's Cottage Quilts. The blocks are just a simple snowball block made from a layer cake! I used a layer cake of Charisma by Chez Moi for Moda. Isn't that fabric fun? This time of the year I tend to want to use happy fabrics.
This is the simplest quilt on the planet. Thirty five snowball blocks, a 1 1/2 inch lattice and two borders--one 3 1/2" and the outer one 6". Aren't those little confetti like lattice posts cute? I just have the quilt center done, and hope to add the borders by the end of the week.
None of the shops in my area have carried this fabric group. It is a bit similar to Posh by the same designers, so maybe folks thought it would be too much of a repetition. I had to order the border fabric online, which was tricky. I wanted to choose a fabric from the line that had all the colors in it. This is the fabric I think I ordered for my outer border:
What a great pattern this was. Fast, simple, and features a layer cake.
I will show you project number two tomorrow!
