Where do I begin?
There are so many issues with this quilt.
First, a Snail's Trail quilt should not be made scrappy. The pattern just gets lost. Or, if it is scrappy, the lights should stay together and the darks should stay together because at the top, you can't see the twirl design.
Second, do you see the block I messed up? Yep, it just jumps out at me. I couldn't figure out what was wrong, thinking it was just because it was scrappy, but it isn't. I sewed one of the blocks with the black and purple corner triangles in the wrong places. If you figure that out after you have quilted it, it's pretty much going to stay that way. Ugh.
Well, I learned from this quilt and will try again, with two colors so the pattern shows up. I like these quilts (when someone else makes them) and will make another one, but not today. Today I need something that makes me happy and not frustrated. But, I will put the binding on and send it out before she graduates from college. That's a promise.
