My goal for Project Quilting this year is to make larger quilts and to practice my FMQ.  I NEED to practice my FMQ.  When I got it working, the pattern for this quilt looked like a snail hauling a double wide.  Technically it is called Snail's Trail, but I think Snailerpark Trash is much more accurate. 



This baby measures 46 x 48 inches.  It is made from my string bag. 



It was foundation pieced. 



And made a mess!



I'll leave you with an arty shot and a link to my blog post that explains a bit more.

It's super fun!  And if you ever want a quilt to practice on, I always seem to have tops that need quilted. Smiley

So, waggonswest... Have you ever snorted scalding hot orange blossom tea out your nose? Cause "snailerpark" got me... Cheesy

tho i still sing corners dont match to myself (okok fine, out loud to the cats(ok ok fine out loud)) most days. And i am so jealous that you only have a string bag, Sad my strings have gotten out of control. Seriously out of control.


Good for you for practicing fm. I havent even started to learn, im afraid. But it does mean a tripto the sewing machine shop... Hmmm.

Thanks everyone.

Slothy... heal fast!  There are lots of ways to avoid corners.  And go for the FMQ.  Just make some small practice sandwiches that you can sew over and over on.  And find gloves.  They make a big difference.

Yoop... go check out the one Shout4joy made in the same time if you want to see amazing.  better yet check them all out on the project quilting Flickr page.

Just did that. I'm beyond amazed! So many beautiful quilts and so little time to create them! But yours is still my favorite!
