Wonderland Quilt (with flowering snowball template)

Today is my stop on the Wonderland blog hop.  If you haven't had a chance to see Katarina Roccella's new collection yet, it is whimsical and wonderful.  She is the sweetest and I have honestly loved each of her collections.

I picked a few of my favorite prints from the collection and made flowering snowball blocks.  This was my first time making this block and I am in love with the effect.  They were only mildly annoying to make and my points matched up nicely.

(if you are interested in making these blocks there is a tutorial for the 12" block here, my blocks are 9" and you can download the template here)

For the quilting I did an organic, somewhat wonky, diagonal crosshatch.  I was going for a whimsical Alice in Wonderland look and I also just really love how this type of quilting makes the quilt feel.
