Snowballs Quilt Progress

Remember the quilt for my son with the more than 1,000 1.5 inch squares to be sewn to the corners of the blocks? It is the "Gilded Snowballs" Quilt form Kaffe Fassett's book "Quilts in the Sun". With three colours used for the corner squares, each row had to be carefully laid out according to the pattern, so I took over the dining table for this purpose ... many dinners on our knees in the lounge room later and all the rows are together. It took me over two weeks to do the 19 rows on and off, each row took about an hour!  I still have to iron the rows and piece them together then piece the borders and add them so a long way to completion. But the end is in sight!

I intend to take the rows and border pieces away on the annual Connected Quilters Retreat this weekend and work on it and one other project.
