Pattern for Val's quilt

As promised, here's the basic pattern in Val's quilt. This is a light teal pattern. Each "arm" is taken from a different basic bulding block of the pattern, so what you see are 4 quadrants of 4 different blocks that combine to make the pattern. I realize that this may be as clear as mud, so just click here to follow the link: Snail's Trail Quilt Block Coloring Page. This will take you to a page that shows one block colored in, then a quilt with just the basic block, and then the quilt colored in the traditional monkey wrench/snail's trail way. (I have since seen it called "ocean waves" also.) Isn't it amazing how coloring it that way changes the basic look of the block?!? This is one of the things I love about quilting!
