This is my first Craftster Craft Challenge and my first quilt!  With spring coming, I realized that the little snails that my dear gave me for Christmas were going to need something for their afternoon picnics.  Even though there's still snow outside here in Minnesota, they decided to have an indoor picnic with tea and a snack of leaves in my living room as soon as it was finished:

I made the tiny cups, saucers and plates out of polymer clay and the leaves from paper.

Just the quilt:

The quilt ended up being a challenge indeed; first I cut tiny squares of fabric 3/4".  It was interesting to look for the tiniest prints I could find in my stash.  I handstiched 16 of them together in rows:

Then I stitched the rows together and machine stitched the edges.

A view of the back:

I tied the quilt with embroidery floss 'yarn':

The size:

A view of the wee squares:

I was so happy with how the snail quilt turned out that I think I am going to have to attempt a larger quilt one day; maybe something that's a bit more of a stash buster. 

Thanks for looking!  I hope you enjoy the tiny quilt as much as my snails do!
