`Autumn is Calling` Patchwork quilt with Valerie Nesbitt
Classes with Valerie Nesbitt • Educational, G, 05-Nov-2021
Valerie talks you through the how to make this stunning quilt that uses the simple snowball block and a block Valerie calls a Ladder block. The great thing about this quilt is that you can re-scale the blocks to be any size you want. All you have to do is just remember to make the ladder block first. Then you can cut the snowball block the same.
The ladder block is made up as a nine-patch block using plain squares and half-square triangle units. Valerie chose to use Thangles to create her half-square triangle units. This means that her plain squares, and snowball ears can also be cut from the same strip of fabric.
If you would like to purchase the fabric, it is available from Creative Quilting – click here to purchase
