    storm at sea block in green and cream - 6.5 inches unfinished size (approximately)

    I made this block from scraps from another project - a long time ago.

    It is NOT paper-pieced.

    If one looks carefully at the back, one can see that some seams have been sewn more than once.

    It's almost the expected size - I think it will become a pot holder someday.

    I find the backs to be informative - one way or another!!!

    I might be able to do it better now - I sure have learned things since I made it - but I'm still proud of that block!

    I like it. You have plenty of seam allowance so that when you bind/sash it, the block will square up nicely. As far as the back, I tell my students, you cover that up. No one knows but you how that looks!

    You should be proud! I have never made a SAS, let alone a 6 1/2" one! That is a hard enough block at 12! SAS is definitely on my bucket list, in fact I have pattern printed and fabrics set aside. I plan on doing one that someone posted a while back that alternates snails trail blocks. It was a very cool result.

    Sure is pretty!! Finish it and leave it on your dining table as a coaster or just something pretty. I do that with my lost blocks

    Very impressive! It looks great - your points are excellent. I really like the way you did the square in a square with one dark green triangle. I've always done all four corners the same. I like this variation a lot.

    Quit picking on that block! It looks really good to me, and should find some friends and get into a quilt.

    I think it would be pretty with a border and then framed in a photo frame then hung on the wall! Sure is a pretty little thing. Thanks for sharing.
    The bad news is - time flies.
    The good news is - you're the pilot!

    agreed...the back is a good way to see what went wrong...what to do differently.

    i would be proud of it to. i did the same thing with some left over blocks. then thought it so pretty...put it in a frame to use as my "warm up piece" when i hand quilt. work out the stiffness from arthritis. it is turning out so pretty, but in my excitement ( had a brainstorm for quilt motif/thread color idea) forgot to put a border on it.

    moral of the story ...lollollol...make a pillow out of it but don't forget the border!

    You have every reason to be proud of that block.
