[completed] sally the snail quilt top

pretty in pink

A few days ago - the same time I completed sidney the fabulous snail quilt top - I made another snail quilt top. This is the Sally the snail quilt top. I originally had all the sashing and borders done in white, but it just didn't look very good, so I replaced the white with a solid pink that I had on hand. Unfortunately, the left edge of the snail shell (which is a textured pink fabric) blends pretty closely with the solid pink. Oh well!

Like with Sidney, I gave Sally the snail a face. Adam helped me to design the simple appliqu├ęd facial features. I like the blue houndstooth eyeball the best. The white is actually a white-on-white print, although it is hard to tell in photos.

Overall, these two quilt tops were fast and fun to stitch up. This Sally version only took 1 yard of pink and five fat quarters - with scraps to spare. A nice, quick and inexpensive project!
