Artful home pattern by Heather Mulder Peterson

I am starting a new quilt from this free pattern online at: http://blog.fabshophop.com/blog/?p=3479  I found a panel of preprinted batik at Foam and Fabrics on Hendersonville Hwy in Asheville awhile ago.  I cut them into 5 inch squares for this project.  (I am not using the measurements of the pattern).  What I have found interesting about this pattern is that it really is a double snowball..The corner edges done twice.  Below you can see it done the first time.

Below you can see the second round of corners done.  All these corner additions make the block look like an octagon.

This is the work in progress...stay tuned...
