Storm At Sea Quilt

Posted by maqdora59 on Thursday, September 10th, 2009

The Storm At Sea quilt pattern has always been one of my favorites. I love the movement you see throughout the quilt as well as the different designs that can emerge by simply changing some of the dark and light fabrics. In fact I have designed several on EQ6, but when it came time to make the blocks, I run in to trouble. The diamond unit is difficult to piece and paper pieceing seemed so tedious.  Well, I discovered a new book and ruler set just for this pattern that are super!

When I saw the book, 'A New Light on Storm At Sea Quilts' by Wendy Mathson, I had to get it because I love the quilt pattern so much, and I was not disappointed. Wendy Mathson breaks it all down and shows you how easy it is to construct the 3 different blocks, with the help of a ruler set, the Fast2cut Storm at Sea TRIMplates Set.  Let me tell you, these rulers are great; the key to successfully making this quilt! In addition, the wonderful photos of countless variations you can get by color placement are enough to spark anyone's creative imaginations!

I decided back in May to make a Storm At Sea quilt for a local quilt guild I belong to, the Silver City Quilt Guild's quilt show. I already had the design on EQ6, so I decided to go for it. Here are the book and ruler set and the blocks I will be using in the quilt (the rotary cutter does not come with the rulers):
