I love color, I don't think that should surprise anyone who's read more than a post of two of my blog. That's why I got super excited about working with V & Co's amazing Simply Color collection for Moda for the latest issue of Quiltmaker magazine. I worked up a fun twist on a snowball block for the magazine, found in the January/February issue of Quiltmaker, available online at Fat Quarter Shop and other retailers, and shipping to stores as I type.
This quilt is a block-based quilt, with a block that is centered around a classic snowball block. Using some simple squares placed methodically, a connection is created throughout the blocks. An additional connection is made by the way I staggered the blocks by color.And I just love the hexagons that are created where the blocks meet!
For those of you who have emailed me this weekend about a kit for this quilt, I'm happy to say that Brenda at Pink Castle Fabrics is working on one as we speak, and as soon as it's available for sale, I will post about it and share a link.
