going slow

Why do snails go so slow? They have to bring their houses with them everywhere! Why else do snails go so slow? Judging by this fun 1970s quilt, snails are just happy to be there. Check out the embroidered face detail.

The quilt came from an eBay seller in North Carolina. It is 51" x 68" and hand appliquéd with hand embroidered details.


  1. Cute. Modern quilters might use a variety of fabrics, especially for the shell, instead of the singular yellow. Imagine the shells all done in Kaffe Fassett. Enjoy!
