snowball queen.. what was I thinking

hello possums…

I have seen this quilt a lot lately all over the place, it attracted me, so maybe with lots of Kaffe Fassett fabrics I thought it could work…

Snowball… BUT I decided to make a queen size, well what was I thinking, did I not realise how many squares and triangles that was going to be.. I never seem to realise how many until I finish cutting them, that could be a good thing for maybe I wouldn’t have been so keen but super glad I did… 11 rows x 11 rows.. 122 squares and too many triangles for me to even work out.. just keep cutting…
