Oh hello little fellows! Snail Paced Sew-Along #snailday

Snail paced sewalong

Slow sewing is all the rage at the mo, and there’s no better way to while away a few hours of the weekend in our eyes. When it comes to patchwork pace, we’re taking it to the next level  and joining in with Gnome Angel’s Snail Paced Sew-Along. We challenge you to find a more fun pattern to sew up this Sunday! Editor Alice has loved sewing up this cheeky chappy, based on the pattern by Pen + Paper Patterns.

Here on the Love Patchwork & Quilting team we’re a *bit* obsessed with solids at the mo, so Alice has resisted the urge to FPP a kaleidoscopic shell and instead opted for solid fabrics in muted tones. What do you think? For more snail-paced sewing ideas, scoot on over and see what everyone else is making on instagram #snailday and #gardensnailsquilt. Hundreds of quilters are sharing their own happy little snails from all over the word. We’ve loved joining in the fun!

If you’re as smitten with Mr Snail as we are, why not download the PDF pattern instantly and give it a go? Choose between  Pen + Paper Patterns’ Garden Snails Quilt Pattern or for a stand-alone snail, opt for the Garden Snail Block Pattern.
