Snowballing the Layer Cake....a quilting post

Biking in the Park
This top is finished...a random part of a layer cake, snowballed
in spite of mudbrain thinking!
 Snowballing calms the busy look of the piece.
Here: a paper mache box I made from quilting wrapping paper..years ago.
With my pressed 3" corners for the snowballs.
.and my modern cell phone pix for remembering the quilt layout.
 The biggest helper of all:  our very own...Stitch!!
He is loving the cozy close feel of the green snowball corners.
He is proud that the green enhances his lovely eyes.
Don't you just hate quilters who are CAT show offs????  !!!!
My ortho appt today showed that my knee replacement is a brilliant success!!
It also showed a shoulder almost beyond repair...needing a total replacement pronto.
However, the doc does not want this new operation too close to the knee replacement..
Thus..he is scheduling the operation for March or April.
Kinda down in the mouth for another operation so soon...
And without my dear man..
I think the O' Quilts  might cheer ourselves with a playmate for Stitch this
It should be a fun outing with three children vying for which new cat to select at the shelter.
Crazy Grandma!!!

I hadn't thought about it that way, but snowballing DOES calm this quilt a bit. I really like it. And that green does accentuate Stitch's eyes! Good news about the knee. Enjoy this time before your shoulder surgery.

Love the color and texture of your quilt. Sweet kitty.

So will you be a three kitty household? Sorry you're going to have surgery again in the New Year, it's a little way off yet so still plenty of time for quilting - and fabric buying!! Like your bright snowball quilt, I have one in the planning stage, another project to add to my long list.

You'll be like the bionic woman when the doctor has finished with you! I love your giant snowballs, a great thing to do with a layer cake. I'm terrible at using precuts, I use my favourite fabrics out of them and then the rest just gets left behind. I think they're better when you use them all. That little Stitchy kitten gets my vote for my favourite online cat.

I didn't know they did shoulder replacements. Grandma, you will be bionic! I am sorry you have another big surgery looming ahead, try to focus on the success of your knee.
No one tires of pictures of cats & quilts. He looks like a little sprite!
