After 2 years, this quilt is finally done! I started this quilt in January 2017 during the Garden Snail Quilt Snail Paced Sew-along. I definitely worked at a snails pace with this one.
I finished piecing the blocks together January 2018 and had the top put together later that month. I put a back together in the early summer, but of course I didn't actually do anything with the top.
This quilt is made almost entirely from my Lizzy House stash. (most of the snail bodies are other designers or solids) It feels wonderful to actually use my favorite fabric for a quilt that will be just for me; since my youngest has laid claim to my last Lizzy House quilt.
For the quilting I did my all time favorite serpentine stitch on my Opal 650. The crinkle effect is just perfect. Plus I did my favorite chunky binding to give the quilt a more framed look without adding a border. I have a quick tutorial in my saved Instagram Stories here.
This is my first completed project from my 2019 FAL list!!! So happy to actually have something completed, now lets see if I can keep up the momentum and finish my other projects! Back to the sewing machine, the best power tool ever!
