What materials did you use? Cotton fabric, cotton thread for piecing, polyester thread for quilting and polyester wadding.

What are you most proud of? I'm pleased with the way the curly bits (can't remember what Leah called them) on the slashing came out. I learnt from my disasters with the feathers, and drew the little snails first a few times, which got me into the rhythm of sewing them. As the fabric in the background is quite "busy" I decided not to do the quilting as suggested by Leah, but just did some echoing in triangles instead.

Great decision to personalise it... love those swirls! Man you are motoring!!!

The swirls look a bit like snails to me!

I rather like snails especially when they're not in my garden, I especially like these ones! ;-)

I love making those in and out spirals! Yours are so nice.

I quite liked doing those too - but only after I'd drawn them a few times on a bit of paper in order to get my head round them!

I like this one as well I was wondering what design I could use on this block. Thank you for your help. Aw inspiring.

The idea for the little "snails" was from Leah Day's course, "Free Motion Quilting a Sampler" which is teaching me so much! I look forward to seeing your blocks when you've quilted them.

I like how you used a combination of lines and swirls on this one. Very nice!!

Thank you - I chickened out when it came to the bits between the slashings and didn't do what Leah Day suggested in her course!
