Playing with Piecing
What if, after I've closely framed the snail, I simply split it in two horizontally? Across the top of the snail's head and through the center of the shell seems like a good spot.
What if I separate out the eye stalks and then draw a seam across the bottom of the shell?
Rather than piece the top of the eye stalks, I'm going to applique them; so I've shown them in orange.
It may not fool an expert but it looks like a snail to me.
I've got a block that would look good on a kid's quilt.
