Storm@Sea

I have looked at the Storm at Sea pattern a number of times, and I did know you could create a heart shape by manipulating the color.  But this quilt came as a complete surprise to me when I realized what the pattern was.  My client, Jan G brought this to me, with a couple other quilts, but this one definitely needed to be finished before Christmas.

Hmm, hearts…what should I quilt on those?

Isn’t this an intriguing quilt?  Storm at Sea, who would have thought?  I quilted feather hearts inside the hearts, of course, using my entire set of heart templates to make the various sizes.  Inside the diamond shaped background is a curve filled with pearls and a couple of small feather-like flourishes.  The fill is overlapping spirals.  Then on the border is a pretty-much invisible undulating feather design.

Heart Detail

Note the spiral fill in here

These are called “hook” feathers. Each one is echoed individually as they are created.

So this finishes my updates.  I am currently only one quilt behind, which means I’m on top of the world and have enough time to post these blogs!
