Snowball quilt

Working with reproduction fabrics really made me feel more retro-ish and I am definitely going to make another one like that. Simple and yet playful, unisex and minimal. The tiny polka dots binding really makes my day every time I use it. Don’t you love polka dot binding?

This quilt contains 42 snowball blocks each measuring 6,5” inches, including seam allowance. It was quilted edge to edge with straight lines of 1/4 of an inch apart from each vertical and horizontal seam.

This quilt is for sale in my SHOP. SOLD

Welcome to Zarkadia Quilting Co.!

Quilts are the most intimate and personal of objects. They connect us with each other to the primal ground of the bed-the place we spend half our lives; where we are born, sleep, have sex, and die; the place where we replenish ourselves and dream our dreams; the place of nurture and healing, where we retreat in sickness and frailty; and the place where we receive the comfort and care of those who love us.
