Snails at Sea Quilt Pattern

A fun paper piecing project, combining the Square in a SquareSnail Trail and Storm At Sea blocks. 

Our green sample was quilted with our Tempest pantograph.

Designer: Dawna Sanders  

Why paper pieced?  We have found that this technique provides the best, most consistent, accurate results to combine these two blocks into this popular quilt pattern.  Don't know how to paper piece, or need a refresher, make sure to check out our accompanying "how to" video in the tutorial section. 

For more inspiration check out Snails at Sea project pics on our Flickr share site!  If you choose to purchase this pattern we would love for you to share pictures of your project as well (#snailsatsea)!  
Also available in digital format.
