Hello! Here it comes … all those blues with a bit of orange …
The pattern “Storm at Sea” has been in my mind for a long time. My ‘american cousin’ sent me once quilt book where the pattern is; thank you again Sonja! That pattern has so many possibilities. For ideas and inspiration, look at the Pinterest.
My sweet little bunny was looking carefully how this goes on. She’s from Helen’s book ‘Modern Vintage Gifts’.
This is the basic block of ‘Storm at Sea’. I thought to make it a little bit different for this quilt. In this project I made the corner blocks more simple. It depends very much about the colours, how this pattern will look. Colours make some shapes pop out. I’m planning to make few quilts using different colour layouts and using the single or double block.
Blue colours are so perfect for storm at sea and I’m happy to have this Kona bundle to play with!
First making some blocks and starting to decide about the colours …
Adding diamonds and thinking more about the colours …
And the sun! We need sun over the Mediterranean Sea!
Here you see how much the pattern change if we just turn it on point! I want to make this, too!
I try to finish this asap to start to quilt by hand! Lots of choises there too, but I think I know how I like to stitch this one.
Thank you so much for your sweet and loving comments! It’s so great to be back!
Best wishes from sun burnt Crete!
