Snail's Trail and Log Cabin are two blocks that are made in a similar way. You start at the center and work your way out.
I wondered, what if these two blocks were paired up? So I set out to find out.
Then what if I make a second unit, rotate it, and join it to the first to make a large block?
What if I repeat this large block to make a quilt?
What if in the first row I mirror-image the large blocks from side to side?
What if I repeat the first row in the remaining rows?
What if I use the first row from the last attempt but I change the background colors to black And grey?
What if, instead of repeating the rows, each row is the mirror-image of the previous one?
What if I repeat the large blocks to make a row?
What if each succeeding row faces the opposite direction?
What if I orient it horizontally then flip each block in a row 180 degrees?
What if each row is the mirror-image of the preceding one?
What if I then repeat that block to make a quilt?
I like the way these two traditional blocks look together. I expect that they could be used in some very interesting ways that I haven't even thought of. Perhaps you can think of some.
