My June goal was to Finish three snail blocks for the Garden Snail Quilt. I'm excited to say that I met (and exceeded) my goal!!!
I now have 42 complete snails. I am almost done sewing them into rows and adding the sashing. I should be completely finished with the top by the 4th of July!
I'm honestly not in love with every snail, but what I loved about making this quilt was that it gave me a chance to practice using the similar colors together. I have no training in color theory so I just do what looks good to me. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. But practicing always helps hone skills. I also thought about contrast. Not sure I learned anything about it but I did look at the blocks in greyscale to consider the tone of the layout. Not each block, just all of the blocks together. I didn't hit the contrast I would have liked but it was still a chance to practice and look at the creation of a quilt in different ways. Again, I'm just learning by doing and sometimes that is more valuable than the final product.
