Snowball Quilt Tutorial

The Snowball quilt block has been around forever and is one of our favorites. It is a super easy block that even a beginner can tackle! Finished quilt measures 49.5" x 55".

Materials Needed:
10 Fat Quarters (We used 5 different fabrics, 2 fq's each)
1 yard white fabric
3/8 yard binding fabric
Backing Fabric

From each Fat Quarter, cut 9- 6" squares, yielding a total of 90- 6" squares. From the white fabric, cut 18- 2" strips. Sub-cut the 2" strips into 2" squares, yielding 360- 2" squares.

For each snowball block, you will need 4- 2" squares and 1- 6" square. Draw a diagonal line to mark all of the white squares.

Place a white square in one corner of the 6" square and sew along the drawn line.

Trim away the excess, creating a 1/4" seam allowance.

Repeat in all four corners.

Iron your seams flat and you are done!

Sew the snowball blocks in 10 rows of 9 blocks.

  1. Thank you for the helpful tutorial! It is really hard to find a tutorial for snowballs where they aren't too angular - yours are just right :) Thanks again for helping me with the dimensions!
