|1970s polyester Bowtie / Snowball quilt, 70" x 83 & 1/2", Florida|
It is assembled in a way that creates a Snowball pattern, with white snowballs floating above a multicolor background when viewed from a distance.
The second quilt came as part of a lot of several quilts from a Facebook friend in Michigan who I met at QuiltCon. It is a Nancy Page design called "Ribbon Quilt". It includes a nice mx of scrappy synthetic fabrics and off white cotton.

I love these two scrappy quilts with floating white shapes. There is the illusion of space; the colors tend to recede from the white, which jumps forward-- a very clever use of color and value.
