Gosh, thanks for all the lovely comments. I spent about 3 weeks trying to find a perfect fabric for making the border appliqué. Bought about 6 different ones, but when I got them home didn't like any of them. The snowball blocks were borne of desperation, both because I couldn't find the perfect fabric and part of me was truly dreading having to do so much more raw edge appliqué. If I do next year's BOM it will all be turned-under appliqué even if it takes much longer. :)

Pam in Scotland, I have not even read those instructions for December, too busy sewing for Christmas. Tried to contact you privately but can't figure out how on the new site. Sorry.
Good luck Janet

You are truly an artist in every sense of the word.
Your quilt is lovely as, is your wonderful singing voice.
The colours are so warm and bright, good luck with the quilting I'm sure it will be finished in time for Christmas.

Beautiful!

Although when I saw the picture of your 'e' block, for some reason I read it as 'eek' :woohoo: :side: :whistle: Don't ask where my brain was going with that :blink:

Rita, I am slack-jawed and speechless! Your design sense and color choices are magnificent! Since I haven't been following this year's BOM, I'm seeing it with fresh eyes. This judge gives you perfect "10"!

So beautiful, Rita, and how perfect the snowball blocks! The colors in the border pick up all the fabrics in the quilt and it just comes together beautifully! I, too, am so sick of applique' that I'm doing a pieced border on my Christmas quilt. Was thinking about the letter "D" block repeated around, but I might just shamelessly copy your snowball border and get this puppy done for Christmas! :ohmy: :P
