    There is a pattern I love and stupidly have not ever taken a copy of where it looks as though curved lines are done, but it actually uses squares, HST's and triangles. Anyone know what I mean?

    Happy day!

    That block is amazing but I've read that it's a challenging one. I go for the non-challenging right now. Even so, maybe a big single block pillow of it is in my future.

    A little pricey indeed. Wonder if they would sell just the pattern?
    Can't hurt to ask them.

    Just finished putting the binding on my storm at sea last night... loving it!
    Quilt is for my our bed, wool and a cotton batting, nice and warm for WI winters!

    I know I can get a block pattern for Storm at Sea, but I'm interested in the kit I posted the picture of. Don't think there would be a free pattern for that, is there?

    Do you have electric quilt? If so you might be able to work it up in that.

    I tried calling the shop and they had sold out of the kits. I don't think the girl I spoke to really knew anything about it. She kept telling me it was a free Moda pattern, but their kit listing mentions including a book and I can find nothing on the Moda site.

    Is anyone else having any better luck finding this pattern - free or otherwise?

    did search garden party +storm at sea and found a book called "a new light on storm at sea quilts" by wendy mathson. this might be the one but hard to tell if this specific pattern is included. looks like a good book though.

    http://www.scribd.com/doc/37396550/A...-at-Sea-Quilts


    here is another called "Storm at Sea New Quilts from an Old Favorite" by barbara smith.

    amazon has both books. sure would like to see inside the books. lol

    Thanks, pd! What a fun way to preview a book! Now I'll look on Amazon. So many neat ways to use the block.

    It was nativetexan and she found the book at big horn quilts.

    I love that quilt but I have so many things on the "to make list" I'd never get to it!
    Please post as you make it.

    There are other patterns that appear to have curved lines. Kaleidoscopes come to mind. This was one of my first quilts - don't look too closely at the workmanship, but you can see the circles.
