Expanded Snail's Trail

This quilt is hanging at the YHQG show this weekend. I got such a kick out of walking into the show and seeing the great way in which the volunteers had hung it.

I wonder if anyone else has ever had the idea of expanding the Snail's Trail block into a full size quilt before? Or if it's an original design? If not I wonder if I can or should copyright it?

I made this quilt top years ago. It started out as a simple Snail's Trail block. Then I wondered what would happen if I just kept going. And going. Deb Kopeschny did a great job of quilting it for me. I added a cute little appliqued and beeded snail that can be pinned anywhere on the quilt depending on how her journey is going. I wanted to come up with a more exciting name "Snail's Great Adventure", "Snail's Voyage" "Snail Discovers the Universe" but decided that for its first time out a more descriptive name might be just what was in order. So it's "Snail's Trail Expanded". This is also the first quilt which I've listed for sale. Please contact me if you're interested in purchasing it!
