Snail Trail Quilt with Fat Quarter Shop

Happy Friday! I'm excited to share my Snail Trail project! I love the "Classic and Vintage Series" that Fat Quarter Shop is sharing with us today. The pattern includes 4 different sizes for your quilt - crib, lap, twin, and queen! I love a pattern that gives so many options! I chose to make the crib size without the borders and it makes a perfect table topper or extra large pillow at 24 x 24". 

This is such a fun pattern to sew! I love the design it creates! My kids call it a ninja star fidget spinner :) I think it is going to be a fave in our family room!

For quilting I did straight-line quilting 5/8" lines apart from each other with Aurifil Dove 50wt.

Fabric I used:

Sewing Tips
1. Trim - Trim - Trim! Trimming after each round will ensure your seams match up and block finishes at the correct size.


2. I did use Creative Grids Stripology Squared Ruler and it was perfect for this project!

3. When sewing your blocks make sure are able to see where the seams match - this will ensure a perfect point/match.

Fat Quarter Shop is offering a Snail Trail Quilt kit featuring Snowman Gathering III. 

Be sure to check out Fat Quarter Shop's Blog: Jolly Jabber and You-Tube Channel for the pattern and video!
