Snowball Block Assembly
Mark the wrong side of the dark value 1 1/4″ squares in half diagonally once.
Lay a marked square on a light value 3 1/2″ square, aligned to one of the corners with the marked line oriented across the corner.
Sew on the marked line. Trim excess fabric a quarter inch from the marked line. Repeat on remaining corners. Press away from the center. Block measures 3 1/2″ x 3 1/2″ unfinished (with seam allowance).
Name Tag Assembly
Fold the Snowball block in half and press a light crease for a writing guide. Write your name across the center of the block using a fine tip permanent marker/fabric pen. Practice on some scrap fabric to get a feel for writing on fabric. Sometimes it works better to draw a line lightly and then go over it a second time to darken the line. Heat press the ink unless otherwise specified by marker manufacturer.
Layer together the Snowball block right side out, 3 1/2″ x 3 1/2″ batting square, and light value 3 1/2″ square right side out.
If you want, set your machine to a zig zag or other decorative stitch. Sew around the edge of the name tag. Attach with a safety pin and wear it to a quilt show, a quilt guild meeting, or to a class at your local quilt shop!
