Join us for the Spotted Snail Trail Quilt Along!

Last month, we released a new and easy way to make the classic Snail Trail quilt block using foundation paper to master the swirling shape and intricate piecing. We were so inspired by this incredible vintage design that we designed a free quilt pattern and wanted to invite you to join in the Spotted Snail Trail Quilt Along!

Kimberly's Spotted Snail Trail Blocks and the Spotted Snail Trail Quilt Pattern.

The Spotted Snail Trail Quilt Along supplies are listed below along with the schedule showing which blocks Kimberly will be sewing each week and when she plans to wrap everything up!

For those daunted by the design of these quilt blocks look no further than our Snail Trail Foundation Paper Piecing and Snail Trail Block Tutorial. Our video tutorial will guide you through everything you need to know and you can follow along with Kimberly in the video as you work.

You’re ready to get piecing once you’ve got your supplies, including the foundation paper! If you get stuck, refer to the directions on the paper piecing pad or back to Kimberly’s video tutorial to refresh your memory.

The Spotted Snail Trail Lap Quilt finishes as a 47.5″ square, and that is what Kimberly is making. The pattern also includes information for a Wall Hanging, Twin, and Queen Spotted Snail Trail Quilt as well.

  1. I’ve had the pad ordered for sometime. It has been backordered at EE Schenck in Portland, Oregon.

  2. Love the papers! I’m sewing along with a Liberty of London layer cake. Managed to complete 16 blocks before I set one of the centers wrong. Oof! Unsewing a snail trail block is a massive headache! Re-sewing is tricky without the foundation paper. Learning a lot with this SAL.
