    That's fabric??? I thought it was glass when I first looked at it. Very pretty.

    Wow, I love it. It is unbelievable how much it looks like stained glass. Your idea of adding it into the Storm at Sea is wonderful. Be sure to post a picture of the finished product

    My husband has a "thing" for sail boats, so I am always attracted to them. You did an awesome job on it!!

    did you have any specific problems? i find stained glass to be one of the most forgiving techniques...so easy to cover oopsies. i guess the only tip i can offer is...cut your applique pieces generously, so you have a little overlap (the bias tape will cover the areas when you apply your (leading). like with all applique start from the lower layer and work your way up, fuse all pieces in place then add your leading and zig-zag the leading in place, which holds all of your applique pieces securily

    That's beautiful! The movement in it is so realistic, I could almost feel like I'm at sea. The idea to include in a Storm at Sea is fantastic, look forward to seeing that!

    thought i would show a bit of the storm at sea design...only the blue part is part of the quilt design, the tan's in the upper corner are not part of the design...the square in the blue colored area is where the sailboat is 'supposed' to go....only time shall tell how it looks in the end :thumbup:

    no i am not paper piecing the storm at sea blocks, i am using the "fast2cut quilters' trimplates / rulers-templates and piecing each block...some by hand at work others by machine at home. got the idea from the book-"a new light on Storm at Sea Quilts by Wendy Mathson" the book comes with blank design sheets you can print off to color and play with design.

    Thanks for the book info. I have aUFO storm at sea in bright batiks that I got fed up with. I like PP but got tired of doing the same block over and over. I'll check this method out. :-D

    Wow....I love it!! Great job. I used to do actual stained glass projects with glass many years ago but still love the looks of it. I will have to try my hand at the fabric type.

    storm at sea's are really beginner friendly...very easy components, they just look complicated when they are all together. anyone at any skill level could complete one. the piecing is very basic, no inset seams, 3 blocks make up one storm block, a 3" block a 3" x 6" block and a 6" block...thats it.
    the book is a good one, and the template/ruler set is great! i am so glad i went ahead and purchased them. the book does have templates in it though if you don't want to buy the ruler set
