Irish Snails – revisited

A few posts ago, I told you I would show you close-ups of the Irish Snails Quilt.  First is a better picture of the whole quilt.  (The sun shone one day while I was at work and my dear hubby strung a closeline across the garage door opening and took pictures for me.  Isn’t he great?) IMG_2651

The back …


The snail blocks:


The Chain blocks:


I used a cream coloured thread (top & bobbin) on the cream fabric and a darker brown thread on the gold and brown fabric.  This gives the back of the quilt a 2-tone look.  I sort of like it!

Happy Quilting!

  1. Hi Gail! Wow, I’m so glad your hubby was so nice and took pictures. He’s a keeper and he did a really nice job!! Look at that back! The snails really stand out and look so very, very cool. What a fabulous finish! Yay you. ~smile~ Roseanne

    • Hi Roseanne,
      My husband is actually a way better photographer than I am. I just point & shoot … he takes the time to get it “just right.”
      I, too, am happy with how this quilt turned out! Hopefully, the recipient will like it as well!
      Happy Quilting! 🙂
