Accuquilt Snowball Quilt in Bee Creative (# 80)

The fat quarter bundle of Bee Creative by Deb Strain was huge and has made lots of lovely little quilts.
This is my 3rd snowball quilt in this bee fabric and it beautifully showcases the novelty fabrics. The Accuquilt snowball die is a great way to show off large and busy fabric.
Yarn dyed Essex linen in black and this awesome border is paired with a black minky for the back.
Robert Kaufman's Fusion Texture is the border and I got it at a real quilt store. I would never have seen its potential in a small on-line image.  My local quilt store has since closed and it saddens me to think of all the choices we miss by not being able to feel, touch and experiment with fabrics we would never buy on-line.
