Snowballs in Red

Just so you know....I haven't been doing nothing this last week. Most of the time I have been watching the Olympics which have been great. I am always amazed that people can give 5, 10 and 15 years to perfecting their sport and then perform in front of millions. Some achieve great success while others see their dreams dashed in a matter of seconds. I am in awe of every one of them for their talent, perserverence and poise in such a stressful situation! The stories of how they got there and their families is an added bonus.

I have been making 5 inch red snowball blocks too. They have corners in whites to dark creams but it is hard to see the corners on my light design wall. I have 120 of them right now. Originally I was going to just put them right next to each other but it seemed rather blah. The top part of the picture is with them separated. I think I may now have to make light snowballs with red corners to put in between each red snowball. I won't get to that for a couple of days....so........ Any ideas of a different in-between block? Any ideas will be welcome.

I think they look wonderful as they are, but if you want to mix them up would 9-patch blocks in between look good.

I was thinking red lips....like a big ole kiss. But hey, I'm no quilter. LOL

I think it looks kind of cool like it is on the wall right now, just add some cream blocks in between the top rows and make it look like it's raining red blocks.

I agree with the 9 patch for your in-between block, I have done this and really liked it! Might try any block that has the half-square triangle for corner blocks so that you get movement and connection....isn't it fun to play?
