“Storm at Sea”.
I had seen many different versions, colors, sizes, etc. but none of these colors. Guess I just wanted to be different. Actually, just wanted to use some fabrics that I already had.
Next was to decided on how big I wanted to make my quilt. I didn’t want to go to small, but did not want to make it a large bed quilt. So, I got my paper out and figured how big to make my blocks and how many I would need for the size that I wanted. I actually ended up using all my fabric, making as many blocks as I could.
Next I cut my material out and made my blocks. For this one I needed 25 small 4 inch squares, 16 large 7 ¾ inch squares, and 60 4 X 7 ¾ inch rectangles.
After all my blocks were made, it was time to sew them all together. I sewed one row at a time, making all my rows, then sewed the rows together. Last, I put a 4 inch boarder all around.
I machine quilted an all over unique Feather like design, that look like the waves in the ocean. I felt it showed up in the material nicely and was appropriat with the name of the quilt.
The finished size is: 58 ½” X 58 ½”
HAPPY QUILTING......HAVE A GREAT DAY!!
