The flowering snowballs are green in honor of St. Paddy's day!

the color of the month at Rainbow Scrap challenge is green, and these 12- 8" blocks are my Flowering Snowball blocks done in greens from my scrap bin. I love this block!
Fun way to use up scraps, sometimes the scraps have a pelican sometimes a kite, little birds again or daisies.
sometimes a frog! I like the mix of tones, and intensities.
Did you hear about our blizzard? It was the scariest storm I've lived through so far...So it was a good time to make my snowball blocks! I made a few in black and white too...do a crossword puzzle while sewing?
I did some odd blocks too, mixing up black with colors in different positions...
Here are a few next to the green blocks. This is going to be challenging to decide how to lay them out... more colors to come.... we never know what color is next. How many blocks do you think I need for a king sized bed? They finish at 8"

  5. Wow! The black and white ones add some pizzazz to the mix don't they?

    We were on the edge of that scary storm with the worst of it starting about an hour west of us. We got rain that day, which caused a lot of flooding. Luckily the worst of the flooding is south of us. It's definitely time for spring.

  6. Those flowering snowballs are such fun blocks! I love the fabric with the kites and also the pelicans. Those interesting prints make scrappy quilts so much fun!

  7. Flowering Snowball is such a beautiful block. You've done a great job with it. And I'm glad you got through the storm safely. We watched on the news daily .

  8. Aren't these blocks fun? I've just finished a lap sized quilt top using all different colors. Now I just have to figure out how to quilt it. Glad you weathered that beast of a storm safely.

  9. 156, or 13 per month. You've got this!

    Glad you had power throughout, and survived! I'll bet Milo needs his exercize, though!

  10. With no sashing and the black blocks for the borders, 196 or 225 blocks. Depending on your tolerance for "cover wars."

  12. These look great! I especially like the two that add in a bit of orange - they add a tiny surprise that I like a lot.

  14. Flowering Snowballs is a cool block on its own, but in green - it's awesome!

  15. Love your Flowering Snowballs. I made a king sized one using cherry themed fabrics but I think the blocks were ten inches. I didn't start out making a king sized one but got carried away and had more blocks than I needed before I knew it because I love that block.

  16. Your blocks are beautiful. It is going to be fun to see all the colors come together. Thanks for sharing with Oh Scrap!

  17. Hi LA, love those blocks and all the color. I guess we all survived the bomb cyclone blizzard. I am sure the wind was similar to Florida hurricane, but without the snow, hehe. Now its all melted and hard to believe it actually happened. Sharon

  18. Lovely, especially the black and white ones! Glad you survived the bomb cyclone. I'll admit, I've never experienced one before and hope I don't again. 😏

  19. Those green blocks are beautiful, and I love how they transition to the black and white blocks. I'm thankful you all made it through the blizzard okay! That sounds awful!

  20. I love your snowball blocks, LeeAnna! Did I miss an earlier post about how you're piecing them? I've been tempted by the Accuquilt GO! die for cutting out the flowering snowball blocks easily, but not sure whether they'd be a nightmare to piece once I'd cut them out. Yours look beautiful, and I love the tiny kites. Perfect for Spring!
