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.

I will have a few more to share the next time. If you're interested in seeing the pattern, check it out in my Etsy store.


  1. Love the colors. The ships are so tiny.
    Thank you for sharing.

  2. The ships go perfectly with the storm at sea.

  3. Love the little ships with this block/quilt design. One of these days I'm going to get around to making one!
