Batik Snowballs

I made 104 blocks, swapped many, and made 4 tops shown here. I had just the right number for one made with all batik snowballs, one with alternate black and batik and two with all black snowballs alternated with ninepatches. The 5 by 7 setting meant I had no blocks left over. I experimented with various border treatments with the aid of templates and made myself use some special batiks.
The quilts were originally intended as charity teenage quilts but 4 young people from downunder, relatives of my husband, are about to visit and I think I'll pack the quilts off to Australia once completed.
