Layer Cake Snowballs - Finished!

I am not late for last Christmas. I am EARLY for NEXT Christmas.


So this top was done last July...yeah...

I did a week-by-week tutorial on it.
Week 1 ~ Week 2 ~ Week 3 ~ Week 4


{Oklahoma obliged me with snow for the pictures}

I did simple quilting, outline the layer cake slices. I probably should have done more, but...I didn't!


The front is a Joy {Kate Spain/Moda} layer cake, with red and green Konas. I do not remember the exact shades.

The backing/binding is Tinsel {Maude Asbury/Blend} and it matches perfectly.

approx. 57x67"

  1. Kate, you're so on top of things - finishing Christmas quilts in February. ;)

    But seriously, it looks really great. I love the simple snowball blocks and sometimes basic quilting is all a quilt needs.

  8. Woohoo!! Yay for a finish for next Christmas season. You know - you can always put more quilting in at some point in the future if that floats your boat. For now it's finished and happiness. :)
