What you will need:
Red and Blue print- 1/2 yard of each
Green and Blue solid or tone on tone- 1/2 yard of each
Red solid or tone on tone (accent fabric for snowball blocks)- 1/4 yard
Focal fabric (center of snowball blocks)- 1/2 yard
Background fabric (beige)- 1 3/4 yards
Binding- 1/2 yard
Backing- 3 3/4 yards

What you need to know:
There are three basic blocks used to make this quilt:

I will be sharing, over the next few weeks, a tutorial for making each of these blocks and then we will finish up by showing you how to piece all these units together and assemble your quilt!
