Storm at Sea progress

I’ve stalled a bit on this quilt, so decided I needed to see what the final top would look like. I laid out most of the completed blocks on the spare bed to get an idea.

Laying it out helped a lot. I like the way it’s looking. For a while there, I wasn’t sure it would look sharp, that the fabrics would just mush together, but I think it sparkles!

I have about twenty more blocks to go and then I lay it out fully to ensure not too many fabrics are next to themselves. Then it’s sewing into rows and the rows into a top!

I just remembered that I think I planned to add a border as well… it might have to be pieced. I don’t think there is enough fabric left.

Next!

I should be making new clothes for myself (Liesl + Co is 25% off today!) or for the kid, or sorting my scraps, or finishing a quilt that was started for someone not in my life anymore. Should. But my sister has been waiting for her promised quilt for a decade now. So I’m prepping to print Storm at Sea using red and black fabrics for a scrappy look.

Something like this:stormatsea-queen-final

Mocked up in EQ7, this measures 83 x 92 inches, including a one inch and 3 inch border and using the 9″ Storm at Sea Inklingo collection.
