Snowballs in July

Snowballs in July?  Quilting style!

I did a trial run at snowballing 4 of my 20 lemonye star blocks just to make sure my proportions are going to be correct.

I am using this same blue print for the snowballs.  And then for the cornerstones, I fussy cut a series of 2" squares to capture some of my favorite sayings!

I am thinking of using the green for a thin inner border followed by more of the blue Noteworthy for a wider outer border.  Without a border, the quilt will finish at 70 by 88.

The blocks unfinished are16 1/2 inches, the sashing and cornerstones are 2".  I used 3" squares to make the snowball corners.

Finishing this quilt top is my goal for August or Another Lovely Year of Finishes!  

Happy Stitching!
