Snowballs (post 2)

This lap quilt is made from my collection of African type prints and Australian ones. On one of our Ruthathons..when Ruth and Emily and I got together to sew for a weekend...we all made a large snowball quilt. Mine is not quite finished but finished enough to show now. I have done some machine quilting, some tying and some hand big stitching with pearl cotton. I am thinking about more big stitching and possibly some buttons..we will see. The back design is from the corners of the front snowballs..double stitching the corners to make the snowballs gave me triangle squares which I made into flying geese for the backing. This is one of my favorite quilts.
