Default Storm At Sea

Starting a new quilt today.Doing a Storm At Sea in Batiks. This pattern was the first quilt I ever made, years ago. Made it for my son Bo when he left home for College. Last year he brought it to me and said "Mom think my quilt needs patched". and then we took a look. Well guys there was no patching it, but u know what, it had been truly loved and used, which is what I love to see done with my quilts. So then he ask if i would make him another quilt.And I said yes son I will.I said, do u what to look through some of my designs and choose one, and he said, nope, want another Storm At Sea. Well, i have never made the same pattern twice, lol, always wanting a new challenge. But, for my son, I agreed. So, I choose lots of dif Batiks from Mary Jo's, and yes i did sneak a few extra in the order for me , Here is a pic of the materials. and the first peces cut out. These are the 60 dark fabric diamonds that will be used in it.

Those sons!! They can wrangle blood out of a turnip. I would be so pleased that he had asked for another one. What a testament to how well he liked it and the memories he has of it. Please share the finished quilt.

would love to see your step by step progress as a storm at sea is on my to do list! is there a reason you chose dark diamonds i.e. was it just your preference or does the pattern tell you that?
