Storm at Sea - finished!





Sheri's quilt took longer than planned: I always forget how long it takes to do lots of SID and background quilting.  (Picking out stitches added time too)  Sheri spent a lot of time on it too, and said she put in plenty of time ripping out seams and resewing. Her top was nice and square and she took the time to serge the edge which I really appreciate.










It turned out pretty, front and back.

  1. Just gorgeous, I really must make one of these quilts, I love the way you've used a variety of colours throughout the quilt. It almost looks scrappy, but I suspect you planned it all along. Lovely quilt, and quilting.

  2. Beautiful quilt, Lovely quilting I can see the work you both have put in. Do you use the curved rulers for your lovely curved cross hatching? I have thought of getting these, but wonder if they might be awkward to use on a domestic machine?

  12. Thank you all for your compliments and comments! Leeanne - I did use a Judalator ruler for the curved crosshatching. It is made to be used with a longarm hopping foot and would not work with a domestic machine.
    LynCC - I used Hobbs wool for the batting.

    1. That's a nice compliment - but most of the quilts on my blog aren't mine. I quilt for other people and they would probably be cranky if I sold their quilts!

  25. The most beautiful quilting I have seen in a long, long time. It shows me that the best is indeed possible--maybe not for me, but I will enjoy reaching for that level.
