pile of snowballs

Only have a few minutes.  here's a quick couple of pictures of the snowball stitcheries.  Am going to set it together with some moda fabrics, found a cute Zippety Doo Dah by Sandy Gervais, couldn't find the other red one I wanted in that line so I got a different moda.  A very nice piece of fabric from a Jan Patek collection, silky smooth, mmm! Now at the store it didn't look too bad, and at night it didn't look too bad.  But in the sunny daylight am re-thinking my sashing choice.  It may be a little too tomatoey for my DMC 498.  In the meantime, take a peek at what I've been doing and part of a setting idea I've been toying with.  Snowballs in snowballs with snowball cornerstones.......................snowball fight!!!!! 

Do you think it's too tomatoey? I know that's not probably a word, but it works for me.
Here are the rest the the SNOWBALL blocks, some are only rinsed out, and haven't been pressed yet.

more later.


  1. Tomatoey, may not be a word Webster would use but it is descriptive. Fomr the picture it may look a little tomatoey, however it is hard to tell from the picture.

  2. It's pretty true on my moniter. orangey/tomatoey! If you look at the snowman wrapped in a quilt on the right side that color on my moniter and in real life is better but the fabric says Merry Christmas on it......... I probably could use it but wanted something more generic, not hoilday specific.

  3. I like the one on your sidebar better.
