WIP Wednesday: Storm at Sea Quilt

My current work in progress is a giant queen-sized Storm at Sea quilt. Yowsa. There are three blocks that make up this quilt. Please enjoy this sloppily pinned together combination of those three blocks:

I was attracted to this oldie-but-a-goodie pattern, because it gives the illusion of curved piecing with only straight seams. What's not to love?

I started working on it back in August, but I took a break to finish my donation quilt. I'll be interested to see how long it takes me to knock it out. There was a lot of cutting involved, but now I'm just piecing and ironing seams flat.

The quilt is all Kona solids: Navy, Copen, and White.

Speaking of Kona solids, there's a great giveaway going on today over at Lily's Quilts. For two Kona Bounty of Basics Boxes, a dark one and a light one. Pardon my drool. Go check it out!


  1. I've always loved that block. Your colors are fantastic! (I'm hooked on solids, too.)

  2. Awesome! Great to follow your progress on this one. I've been wanting to try a Storm At Sea, but I'm not crazy about the whole sewing-it-to-paper thing either, so if/when I make one, I'll just have to watch out for the sizing-things you've mentioned ... THANKS for keeping notes on it!
