garden snail goes to town


My snail is loving life, it has its glad rags on and is heading into town for a night out! With flecks of metallic in its shell and a dusting of glitter on its body, this snail is ready to boogie!


This block is from the Garden Snails Quilt Pattern by Pen + Paper Patterns and I'm joining Angie, Gnome Angel and friends for #snailday Sunday as part of the Snail Paced Slow-Along Sew-Along!

The pattern includes this bonus foundation paper pieced block and I couldn't resist that swirly shell. I enjoyed a root through my scrap bag and ended up picking out some bright greens and fuchsias mixed with black and a little bit of coral. I absolutely had to use that Brownstones, Gramercy by Leah Duncan print for the background and it pairs so beautifully with the Essex Yarn Dyed Metallic I used for the body.


This is such a fun pattern and there are lots of fabulous snails popping up each Sunday on Instagram, check out #gardensnailsquilt for more inspiration! You can join in with the slow paced sew-along any time, all the details can be found here at Gnome Angel.

Purchase the Garden Snails Quilt Pattern and create your own unique snails, there are lot of cool possibilities for quilting with this one too. What fabrics would you chose?
