I love everything about this quilt, the name, the way the ‘arrows’ zoom in different directions, and its simplicity. The design uses two different blocks, the simple “Snowball” block and a traditional “Contrary Wife” block. Notice that the “Snowball” block has two red corners and two green corners. Half of the “Contrary Wife” blocks are red and half are green. Careful color placement is the key to the design.
I stumbled into designing this quilt several years ago and have used it as a class project many times. In every class, at least one woman has looked at the title and yelped, “Oh! That’s my husband and me! I’ve just got to make this quilt for our bed.” When choosing the fabrics, notice that you need lights and darks of each color.
