Snails Trail Inspiration with Jennie Rayment
Classes with Jennie Rayment • Educational, G, 01-Jul-2016
Jennie has used the Snails Trail block in her sew-a-row style quilt Stripy Stripey Story Quilt but it is a traditional block in it’s own right, with lots of different design options. Here Jennie shows you a few; but if you would like to know how to make the block then you can see this in more detail in Row 8 of her quilt – click here to enjoy.
You will find that Jennie uses the E-Z angle templates which helps her cut the pieces quickly with the rotary cutter and then help with the accurate piecing – particularly when you take account of the different way the grain of the fabric behaves in the different triangles – you can again learn more if you watch Row 8 of her quilt.
