Sorry this is late, but maybe some of you will save it for next year!

Follow the instructions on this link!

Well, these are not really quilted, but they look like it!
They are easy to do, they just take time!
Start with cutting a lot of 2 & 1/2 inch squares of fabric, lots of straight pins and 3 inch styrofoam balls! Other sizes will work also!
It says to iron all your squares, but I just finger pressed mine, and it worked well.

Here are a few I have made.

Linda, thanks soooo much for posting these! I sent out a c-mail to the group so they can look for fabric now when it's so inexpensive. What a great idea!!!

My favorite is the large ball in the 2nd photo in the upper right.

Thanks everyone. These are a lot of fun. The hardest part are the first squares, getting them lined up, but after that, it goes smoothly. You can even put a fussy cut of fabric for the square, and omit the first center row for a different effect.
