No matter what time of year it is, I can’t help but love quilting up a storm. It may be summer, but I’m still spending plenty of time in my sewing room.
Recently I stumbled upon a quilt called the “Snowballed Disappearing Four-Patch,” and it’s actually super easy to make.
As per usual, this quilt comes from the incomparable Jenny Doan at Missouri Star Quilt Company, and I loved making this just as much as I love staring at the final product.
This quilt looks like so much work, but as Jenny explains, it’s actually incredibly simple. The whole thing ends up being a breeze! First, you’ll need to gather your supplies. Here’s what you need.
Now that you’ve gathered your supplies, it’s on to making the blocks. It’s a whole lot easier than it looks. The majority of what you’re doing is mix & matching.
You’ll be sewing together your 5 inch squares, then you’ll trim them into different shapes: a 4 patch, strips of fabric, and so on. You’ll make some half square triangles, too.
Sew up the blocks to form a quilt top, then add any borders, your batting, and your backing fabric along with any free motion stitching. Easy!
Once you’re done, you’ll mix and match everything back together, just like Jenny shows in her Missouri Star Quilt Company video below.
As you can see, it’s a lot easier than it seems. Give it a shot yourself and you’ll see what I mean. Happy quilting!
