Hello -

This is my 2nd post. I have found a lot of cool stuff on this board.

I'm wondering if anyone here has completed a "Storm at Sea?" I bought a template set and it looks like amateurs like us can finish one, but it is a lot of cutting and sewing. If you have one would you please post a pic and give a difficulty rating and tell me any tips or tricks you learned?

TIA

Darren

Sorry I haven't finish one, but I do have it on my to-do list. Where did you the templates?

That's a stunning pattern!

I especially love the blue and white one, the contrast is awesome.

Can I ask why this pattern is considered difficult?

I got it on ebay - this looks like the pattern but I don't think this is who I bought it from. My templates seem sturdy and durable.

Thanks for the pics. We have plenty on our plate for now, but I do want to do one of these quilts.

Some links to a couple of places for a free pattern....the McCalls one is stunning.

If you go to www.Quilter'sCache.com she gives very good directions and levels of difficulty. It doesn't look impossible.

This is timely for me! I am glad someone asked! I have one started. I have had to put it aside to catch up on other WIPs. I found the pattern in a book. I'll get some pics posted when I get a little more of it together. The pattern I have has you make the large blocks then the diamond pieces and small squares are put in as sashing. I hope it works!!

The first time I made it, I used templates.

The next time, I used the rotary cutter and standard measurements to do everything but those diamond/rectangle sections. I used foundation piecing for those, and it worked really well.
