Because I was doing some custom designing on this quilt, I have a few 'before' photos to aid in the design process.
I wanted to emphasize the rounds (or trails
) of the snails around the center, and Kerri had asked me to make sure that the blocks that extend into the border stand out, because the fabric values wound up being similar and they weren't distinct.
and some different textures to each 'round' of snail trails
the center medallion got some special treatment as well, to highlight the medallion aspect
