Here it is — all quilted and everything — my first Storm at Sea quilt. OK it’s a wall hanging, about 28″ by 28″. Not bad for using 3 fat eights from the Bay Area Modern Quilt Guild Echo Challenge and fabrics from my stash. I bought a quarter yard for the brown inner border and a yard of the mint print for the outer border, backing and binding. After using the scraps in the back, I have about a fat eighth of the mint left. I’m happy.
I experimented with the longarm quilting patterns. My next project will be a bigger Storm at Sea and I want the quilting to support the piecing design. This was a great help for finding out what works and what I want to do differently next time.
