BLOCKS by SIZE 12" Quilt Blocks

Snail's Trail

Free Quilt Block Pattern

The Snail's Trail quilt block is technically a four patch because it is designed on a 4 x 4 grid. However, for the ease in sewing this popular block I have created the pattern as an uneven nine patch. Why make things more difficult?

This sample design illustrates a "controlled" scrappy colour scheme of a variety of purples and keeping the background fabric as one selection. The block features squares and half square triangles and a central motif with a square in a square featured as its centre.
