Another blue and white quilt

How's this for another simple, striking blue and white quilt?  

Grandma calls this "snowball" and it's one of her first machine pieced and quilted quilts.
 The pattern couldn't be easier - nine patches with alternating snowball blocks.  I love snowball blocks for their ability to link blocks together and make a secondary star-like pattern.
 We looked closely and saw evidence that Grandma tried out several machine quilting techniques before finishing the quilt with straight lines with the walking foot.
And Buddy settles in for a nap:).
