Applique Heart in a Snowball for February
This version of the snowball block was published in 1911 by Joseph Doyle, a Newark New Jersey company that printed at least two booklets offering quilting patterns, The Patchworker’s Companion and Patchwork and Quiltmaking.
The heart is the classic shape for learning needleturn appliqué because it gives you the opportunity to practice straight and curved lines and inside and outside points.
. . . and your results do not have to be perfect to creae a great looking block . . . mine weren’t and I think my block is pretty cute 😉
