I have torn my quilt room apart and can't find the pattern. It's one very simple block that uses up a lot of scraps and fat quarters. I think I might have gotten it from a quilting magazine. Does anybody recognize it? THANKS!

I contacted a lady on on this site about hers. so I googled Storm and sea and printed the free paperpiecing template and MUCH to my surprise it was Really Really easy I did some of the pieces ahead of time then put it all together on sun.
I can't decide if I want to put a red small

I have begun using primarily wool batting because I like the almost trapunto look it gives when the background is densely quilted. I am wondering if a thinner thread or a thicker thread will help to emphasize that effect.

I used the back-basting/needle turn applique method and it is hand quilted.
I'm sure others of you out there have done this quilt and I would love to see them.

I used Hobbs 80/20 and MetroEmb thread for the quilting. The pictures don't show the color very well -- the backing is actually a very dark black.

I pieced this top years ago..and I had some "practice" time available last month to work on one of my own. I have seen many quilters actually quilt "quilt blocks" into space on quilts..but have never done that myself. So I used all my 9 patches as framework for these blocks..some turned out better than others...but it is a practice quilt..so that is perfectly fine. So this is my Sampler quilt....on a 9 patch....Thanks so much for looking!
