I have had my eye on the traditional quilt pattern called “Snail’s Trail” for many years now, but have never tried it. I love the simple two colors, and how something as simple as a small pile of triangles can turn into something so cool.

The purple and yellow block shown here is from http://www.sewquilty.com/, and you can find the directions for a 12 inch block here. There is also a video showing how to put it together here.

For a fabulous selection of great Snail’s Trail quilts, check out Google Images. I love to go to Google Images and do a search for a quilt pattern I am interested in. It automatically brings up a ton of great variations of style and color. Try it!

Looking ahead at the
B.O.M. Calendar for March

For our March block, we are going to do something with the Snail’s Trail pattern. You will need:

  • 1/4 yard green fabric
  • 1/4 yard white (or white on white) fabric
  • 1/8 yard solid orange fabric
  • White thread
  • Orange embroidery floss to match fabric
