Assemble Snowball Blocks
1. Referring to Diagram 4, sew together two yellow floral 2×42" strips and a cream print 2×42" strip to make Strip Set C. Press seams toward yellow floral strips. Cut strip set into eighteen 2"-wide C segments.
2. Use a quilter’s pencil to mark a diagonal line on wrong side of 72 cream print 2" squares. (To prevent the fabric from stretching as you draw the lines, place 220-grit sandpaper under the squares.)
3. Align marked cream print 2" squares atop ends of a yellow floral 2×5" rectangle (Diagram 5, noting direction of marked lines). Stitch on marked lines; trim excess fabric, leaving 1⁄4" seam allowances. Press attached triangles open to make a pieced rectangle. Repeat to make 36 pieced rectangles total.
4. Referring to Diagram 6, sew two pieced rectangles to long edges of one C segment to make a Snowball block. Press seams toward C segment. The block should be 5" square including seam allowances. Repeat to make 18 Snowball blocks total.
