Storm at Sea: Day 2
Here is the first quilt I made testing out my pattern. I had to make sure I knew what I was doing since I planned on getting a few hundred kits laser cut for my workshops. NO room for error!

I decided to add those little boats in the four corners. They measure 5" x 5", but since the patches were already cut, it just meant that the students had to be careful with their 1/4" seams (and they were). In my pattern, I include the option of making those by paper piecing. This is how John Flynn's company packaged the units so as to keep everything neat and tidy!
I took one of my samples and finished it without a border. I donated it to a local charity a few weeks ago. Here it is as a quilt top I made in 2010.

Yes, I know those boats are somewhat "lost at sea" but I know some little child will find this a fun quilt to snuggle under. No borders; just striped binding.
