Snail Trail Quilt Along
The Snail Trail quilt block is a very old and beautiful quilt block pattern that is being shared in the Fat Quarter Shop Classic and Vintage Series. Keep reading to get your free pattern.
I decided to make the crib quilt which is 37.5″ x 37.5″ and uses just 4 of the Snail Trail blocks. This block looks hard but takes no time at all to make.
Here is my Snail Trail quilt on my design wall, I used 2 different dark green batiks and 2 neutral color batiks for my blocks and a muslin for the background. I used just 4 fat quarters plus my background fabric for the blocks. This will also look great on our dining room table.
For the backing I just chose something in my stash that had a tan design.Be sure to visit the Jolly Jabber to see other great examples of this block and find the link to the video and free pattern!
There is also a Snail Trail pattern available in 4 different sizes from Fat Quarter Shop.
The quilt made by Fat Quarter Shop uses the Snowman Gatherings III by Primitive Gatherings for Moda fabrics. There is a 65.5 x 89.5 quilt kit available
