Paw Prints!

I have this awesome idea for a quilt for D...

so I tested the block by making a throw pillow for the living room...
the back is just bright turquoise minkee, but the front is this block:

isn't it cool?
It's sometimes called Snake Trail, or Drunkard's Trail (NOT drunkard's path, which I also love)

you can put a ton of these blocks together into a GIANT maze....
I used scraps to string the middles, and the blueish-grey is from a pair of C's pants that he loved but got too much paint splattered on them.... and the black is linen from an old, tattered pair of his pants...
I tested lots of quilting designs, quick and dirty, and then the kitties decided that they were allowed to walk all over it with their muddy paws...

Looks great Ramona, got my material yesterday, and glad someone's done one of the blocks, so I can see how it looks. I have five days off this weekend (easter and ANZAC day) so will get it done for you!! (Liz)
