Storm At Sea

Audrey is one of the most senior members in our guild.  I think she and her husband recently celebrated their 65th Wedding Anniversary!  She continues to amaze us with her fabulous quilts!

This Storm at Sea is a recent example of what she creates.   I just love this pattern, so much movement and not a curve in place!

She made this one for her son.  He is an outdoorsy guy who grew up here near the lake, and there is a scrap of fabric depicting a sailboat, somewhere among all those pieces. 

So, for the body of the quilt I used Jodi Beamish's Waterworld pantograph.

 In the outer border I put some mariner's compass' in the corners (not pictured unfortunately) .

From Anne Bright's book called "Simply Continuous Boys to Men"  I got the North, South, East and West symbols and in between I placed a row of sailboats that I came up with myself!.
 It's such a joy to work on a lovely quilt!

Wow, I just love Storm at Seas. I'd be terrified to quilt it - I wouldn't know where to start, but you did a great job with it!
