    I thought about making one, then I came to my senses. Lots of small triangles. Good luck with yours.

    I have one in my WIP collection -- I love the pattern. It's not terribly difficult if you use the right rulers -- tri-angler I think. I definitely plan to complete mine in 2012 -- it's such a pretty design when completed.

    Well, it has severe diagonals, so they stretch miserably... and is immensely effort-intensive.... it is actually a 54-40 block with elongated diamonds in the sashing strips with corner blocks....so it's really 3 different block designs, put together with 1 block, 4 corner, and 4 sashing sides.... only you can decide whether it is worth it..., but i'd rather make 3 other quilts in the same amount of time...

    Not only will you make one, you'll show us how beautiful it is once you're finished.

    No way will I talk you out of it! One of my favs!!

    You know you can paper piece it? Will make those tricky angles easier and bias problems disappear.
    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

    It is on my to do list. Definitely buy some of those rulers and get the super sized rulers so you have extra large and bigger pieces. No one says storm at sea has to be made with mini pieces. It looked doable and fun to me. Just start with big blocks and a smaller lap size quilt. Have fun.

    It's a lovely pattern & one on my "Someday " list. I like Annaquilts idea; bigger blocks & a smaller quilt! (I only make lap size anyway!) PP sounds great also! Go for it!

    It is not that difficult to do. I encourage you to give it a go. Unfortunately, my browser prevents me from uploading photos at the moment.

    It's been on my list for years, so you have to make one also.

    Do you have a source for a PP pattern for Storm at Sea? I have always LOVED this pattern and want to make one, too.

    I have made 2, both paper pieced. Turned out perfect, and they are beautiful. Give it a try.

    They're very pretty, but I don't think I will be making one any time soon. Good luck if you decide to do it. Post a pic for all of us...maybe some will change their minds.

    I made mine when I was still living in NYC - probably 20 years ago.
    If I knew how to scan a picture into my computer I'd show it to you, but I don't.
    I don't sew, just make quilts, and only straight lines. I can't even do a zigzag stitch let alone a curve.
    This is by way of saying - GO FOR IT - it's a lovely quilt and not at all hard to do - just cut accurately.

    Under a Stormy Sea - What a beauty! is there a pattern or did you design it yourself? If your own design, can you post a tute?

    I turned my last log cabin quilt into a storm at sea. I'd love to make a real one. Sorry, I won't try to talk you out of it.

    SAS doesn't have curves, it just an optical illusion.
