Quilt Pattern/Name: “Snowball” Dishes
Quilt Size: 27 inches by 37 inches
Quilt Maker: Ann Tarabini
Quilt Completion Date: Early 2000’s
Extra Information: I wanted to showcase some blue fabrics that reminded me of patterns found on dishes. I saw a quilt that had shelves with teacups showcased. I decided to try this with my “dishes” fabric. I also wanted to try out a new “iron-on” batting which I soon decided never to use again. I had such a difficult time quilting this piece! The batting might work better with hand quilting than with machine. I decided to use a minimal amount of quilting. You may notice that it does not hang well but I still like to look at the blue fabrics (see below).
To make the dishes, I used the Quick Corner Method. This is a great technique for beginners to learn. See below for more examples of Quick Corner blocks and quilts.
