More snowballs

Samantha has commissioned me for yet another quilt! It’s another gift, and she didn’t have much of and idea on exactly what she wanted, other than it be dark, but energetic and creative, and have cats.

I scrounged through my stash and came across a couple leftover fat quarters from the collection we used for her Kitty in the Sky with Diamonds quilt. From there I raided mine and Mom’s batik stash and pulled colours that would work with that fabric. This was the result.

The fabrics were all cut into 5″ squares. (And that big cat print had to be fussy cut.). Then I cut eleventy billion 2.5″ squares in plain black – and got to snowballing.

This is just a sample. We’re doing this one approximately queen size, so I’m going to need about 225 blocks. That’s a lot of snowballing, but it’s fun and easy. I’m calling this one Mystic Maze.
