She sifts through stacks of orphan blocks at yard sales and antique shops, imagining the quilters who started – but never finished – so many years ago.
When Jenny spotted a long-forgotten Mother’s Choice block, she fell in love! And then…she used a sprinkling of Missouri Star magic to make that pattern new again!
Mother’s Choice Remake is a beautiful, simplified version of the old-fashioned Mother’s Choice. This pretty jelly roll quilt is made easy with half-square triangles, flying geese, snowballed corners, and – best of all – zero Y-seams!
You may know this block as Dove at the Window, Fringed Square, or Laurel Wreath. But no matter the name, this quilt is an absolute stunner!
When Suzy Snowflake comes tap, tap, tappin’ at your windowpane, how do you react?
Do you welcome winter with open arms or do you wrap up in your thickest quilt and “hibernate” ‘til spring?
Do you curse each icy flake, or do you set up the Christmas tree and drink peppermint cocoa for breakfast, lunch, and dinner?
Love it or hate it, winter is on its way, and Jenny has just the quilt to get you in the mood:
The Snowball Star is a quick and easy jelly roll pattern. We’re using Ombre Snowflake Metallic strips, and every block is made special with – you guessed it – snowballed corners! Click HERE to watch the tutorial!
