    End of a very stormy navigation...
    I landed safely...I will never do it again...Just horrible...Much too difficult.....Plenty of headeche.....
    My son is very happy with the results, but he is not an expert in quilting...lol
    I really learnt a lot.... :cry: but it almost killed me :cry: :cry: :cry:

    That's just amazing! I love your color choices and the workmanship is terrific! I've wanted to do a storm at sea heart quilt for years, but haven't gotten up the courage to try it. Kudos to you for a very successful voyage!!

    I think Storm at Sea is one of my favorits for a mans quilt I think my husband would love to have that one. Good job now wasn't that worth all that work?

    :D Thanks to all of you.....I know I will never get here a true bad criticizm.....But , thanks anyway.....
    I did not choose the colors (my son did, he even bought the fabric (just to make me feel worse when things were not going so well.....He choose the pattern......) I really didn't know its going to be so problematic.....
    I do not recomend it....unless you want a real headache.....Some of the pieces are so confusing...
    :oops: :oops: :oops: I am blushing from all the complements....You are really great....Thanks :D

    It's beautiful Ania! I totally understand what you mean about how hard it is....I just did a Storm at Sea test block, which decided us that we are now doing an Irish Chain quilt instead! (My friend & I are making a quilt for one of our "nieces" for her wedding.) I made it with paper piecing, but those points still didn't want to match. So it will get a couple borders & become a wall hanging for my office. :)
    I admire you for sticking it out & finishing it! :thumbup:
