Whether you’re in the artificial tree or real tree camp, there is no denying that the simple ball ornament is a must-have! This understated ornament can be found in all different sizes on my family tree so, I had to include the Ornament quilt block in my series.
I think I own this ornament in almost every color under the rainbow and my ornaments span the generations. For years, I would search estate sales looking for mercury glass ornaments of yesteryear.

To highlight special prints, I took my time and fussy cut the center section. Using just a standard quilt ruler and some washi tape, I was able to center the design and trim away the excess. It was extremely easy!
This block is made with a simple patchwork construction and is very easy to make.

PIN THIS BLOCK
Holiday-inspired blocks like this one are a great addition to your quilt library but often overlooked until needed. That’s why it’s a great idea to PIN THIS to your favorite quilting or Christmas board on Pinterest. This way, you can look through your pins for inspiration and remember patterns you already on hand!

This is a fun block, but the button doesn’t add it to my cart. I’m on MacBook Pro and Safari, all up to date. Thank you.
Thank you, I am so happy to hear that you like the block. As for the technical issue you are experiencing with check out, I am not sure. I too am on a MacBook and can not see to replicate the issue in the incognito window. Perhaps you could try a different browser, maybe Chrome?
Keep me posted!
