Don't know why, but I loathe snowballing. No logical reason- don't mind trimming loads of HSTs or anything, but snowballing makes me boil. Maybe because I feel obligated to use the small triangles cut off instead of throwing them away. I tried sewing some of them, but they are so tiny.
I did read the pattern, but I am challenged when directions just use shades of gray to explain fabric placement. So, I did two sample blocks as a trial, were wrong. It took some staring to figure out why. So, the whole 9 patch had to be ripped. After being resewn, I got it. I can only make two blocks at a time because the snowball effect takes hold. So then I sew something else and come back to it. There will be 20 blocks when it is done.
I do love the fabric. I wish I could figure another way to cut fabric so I did not have to snowball.
