Have You Tried

Playing With Storm At Sea?

Storm at Sea is a versatile block. Go looking and you'll find many wonderful versions of it. After a while you start thinking that everything that can be done has been done.

But has it...?

Often the Storm at Sea Blocks are made so that they overlap.

But they don't have to.
What if Storm at Sea Blocks are combined so that some overlap and some don't?

It's time to try different color combinations and see what happens.

It doesn't matter if it's Storm At Sea or some other block, you can always find something new to try.


  1. I love this block! Your ideas of creating that secondary pattern with color instead of the overlapping blocks is really cool. I've not made a quilt using this block, but my heart keeps saying it has to happen... thanks for this new way to look at it!

  2. Storm at sea is on my list of quilts to make, i haven't had time to play with it yet, but I really like that last one you made. Thanks for sharing.

    It's amazing what you can do with Storm at Sea blocks when you start playing with the colors. Joen Wolfrom managed to turn a Storm at Sea quilt into a flower garden.

    I think almost every quilter harbors the desire to make a Storm at Sea quilt. It's a classic.
