These cracked me up!  especially the birth reenactment.  They are great!

Those are great.  I love the fabric choice, and the pattern. 

Can I ask where the pattern is from?  Or is it your own? 

It must take a lot of patience to sew those. 

Oops, I meant to include that in my post.  I got it from a book - Patchwork Puzzle Balls by Jinny Beyer.

They're really pretty. They sorta remind me of temari balls.

I make temari too!  I guess I am really drawn to geometry Smiley

I love corduroy.  I found some yummy chocolate brown corduroy at a thrift store.  I paired it with some gorgeous gold printed fabric by Free Spirit to make some patchwork balls.  I made two versions.  I think these are my fave fabric balls I've ever made.  And that is my daughter holding each one. 

edit:  I got the pattern from Patchwork Puzzle Balls by Jinny Beyer.

Oh I love it!  I really love random quilts that have tons of different fabrics.  Definitely display that.  It's beautiful.

Did you use a machine or hand sew it all?
I'm very impressed with how round and symmetrical they all turned out.

I sewed by hand because I feel more confident that way.

Those are really nice, and I love the fabric you chose for all of them.  How large/small are they?

Thanks, they are all about 4 or 4.5" in diameter.  I can't measure them now!

wow, these are spectacular! would they ever look gorgeous as xmas decorations too. wonder if i can make up a few small ones in time? nothing as elaborate as yours though, they are really impressively detailed. very nice work and *this rocks* for sure!

Thanks!  Yes, they make great xmas tree decorations.  I think it's def possible to learn the craft and make a few before xmas.  go for it!

I love the fabric you used on the greenish one! reminds me of the beatles yellow submarine!

THAT'S why I love it so much!  I stared at it for a while before scrolling down, and you've got it exactly!   Cheesy

I love it too and I wish I had more of it.  I just had a little fat quarter I picked up a while ago.  I've used it in various patchwork balls.
