Storm at Sea

Kathy pieced this Storm at Sea pattern as a wedding gift for her niece.  I used a cream thread in the background, and a blue/green variegated in the colored areas.  It measures 85 x 100.

The coloring creates 2 large blue hearts - a variation of the traditional Storm at Sea coloring.

I quilted a curved fill around the larger diamonds, which creates a secondary star pattern.

I quilted a large swirl with a hook to fill the diamonds, along with connecting curves to help fill the space

The smaller blocks have figure 8's and connecting curves

the larger blocks have the hooks and connecting curves

I put feathers in the narrow border, and the hooks on a vine in the large border

She found a great backing that has all the same colors
