Snail Trail Quilt

I would like to share another quilt I have recently finished quilting which was pieced by Linda from Quilts in the Barn.  Linda's first love is antique quilts and reproducing them using reproduction fabrics - the Snail Trail Quilt she has made is a wonderful example of such a quilt.


Linda's quilt was quilted with a spinning feather in the red snail trail blocks and continuous curves in the cream snail trail blocks.



 
More feathers were quilted in the border with a scrolling feather.
 

And yes, Linda knows that some of the four-patches in the quilt are facing the wrong way.  She is just not saying whether they were as a result of the fact that this is quite a confusing pattern to construct or whether they are intentional as only God is perfect!


Thanks again Linda, your quilts are an absolute delight to work on!
