    Blue Storm at Sea

    I have had this finished for a while, but it has been on our bed because it is soooo comfy. I worked on the piecing off and on for almost 2 years. I finally finished it about 5/6 months ago, but just now got pictures this morning. It isn't perfect, but I was experimenting and since it is my own personal quilt so it's just fine for me. I did an all over design because it was starting to get cold last fall and I just wanted it finished for my bed. I'm sure some of you can relate. LOL

    I used wool batting and love how comfy it is in the winter. Wool batting is my hubby's favorite because he gets hot easy and wool is the best for keeping you just right.

    Thanks for looking.

    Thank you! I forgot to say that I used the book More Traditional Favorites Made Easy by Jo Parrott. It's still a SAS, so still a lot of work, but I enjoyed making it. It is my 3rd one. The other 2 SAS are lap size and waiting to be quilted.

    You can do it! Just one stitch at a time. It took me so long because it is big and I get bored easily. It's a lot of work, and I would take a week and work a step in the process, then set it aside for a bit. I repeated this until it was done.

    That is beautiful. My dad would love this blue quilt. Been waiting on me to make him one for over a year. Can't really find any maculine blues here on the Coast.

    That is SO beautiful!!! Blue is my favorite color and your quilt is gorgeous.....that quilting, tho, is overwhelming! I could never do that. And I know I should look it up but what is an SAS?
