Here is what may be my most favorite quilt yet. This pattern is called Snail's Trail and I have loved it since I first laid eyes on the pattern. I was thinking about why I love the pattern so much and I determined that it is because the whole thing comes together in a spiral pattern. I'm wild about circles and spirals. You can see that the patterned fabric is also circles.
I am also somewhat wild about crazy fabric patterns. The problem with this is that after I make the quilt top, I go back to the fabric store to find a backing fabric and I have the hardest time coming up with something that is complementary. This quilt has a fantastic minty green fabric with tiny polka dots (yes, circles again). The green background matches the green in the front of the quilt.
I have this quilt listed in my shop on Etsy. I priced it fairly high for two reasons. The first reason is that it took quite a while to make. The second reason is that I like it so much I sort of want to keep it! If it doesn't sell at my exorbitant price, I'm going to hang it in the living room over the piano.
Speaking of quilts...I have been enjoying this woman's mini quilts. Check it out. I wish I was that artistic.
Father Leo, our fabulous Parish Priest, told a joke about the rooms in Heaven on Sunday. I think I'm hoping for a warm sewing room (gold sewing machine of course) since my sewing room must be the coldest room in the house. It gets hard to sew when my hands are numb. Ok, I'm exaggerating. A little.
