    Snail's trail question

    I want to make a quilt for a friend, a longtime basenji breeder.
    The basenji breed has 4 colors the AKC recognizes, so I thought the "Let Sleeping Dogs Lie" pattern would be perfect

    As a past basenji breeder, I have trouble looking at this objectively, so I'm posing the question here, to quilters:

    Is this snails trail block pattern believable as a basenji?

    I've included a picture of a basenji and it's curly tail but I will add that when they are very very relaxed, sleeping, it does uncurl (though knowing the temperament of the breed I doubt they would entangle them)

    I asked my husband and my son, telling them to be honest, and they said yep, they could be basenjis. Also, the pattern came with 16 different applique head patterns, and a couple are basenji like, so I really only need opinions on the tail

    I think it's great...and to make it more personal, could you get an actual paw print from your friend's dog to use as your pattern for the corner paws?

    That's a wonderful idea, but she's 4-5 states away, and this is going to be a surprise.
    Long story, I'll share it when this quilt is finished.

    Thanks all, for the 'it looks perfects" My years of showing basenjis wouldn't let me look at this objectively

    That is a beautiful pattern, and I think your friend will love it! I think it's very clever to come up with this idea for Basenji's. Just beautiful.
