UFO Finished!

The Miniature Storm at Sea quilt is finished! Woohoo!
Let the celebrations begin!
I bought the laser cut kit from John Flynn at Paducah in 2009. I started piecing the blocks in February 2011. To see how small these blocks are -  click on this blog post. I love making miniature quilts, so I enjoyed every step of making this quilt. The only drawback is that it takes a long time... and I have a lot of patience, so we make a good combination :)

I machine quilted bubbles in the border and hand stitched the binding. Hopefully you can see the bubbles in this altered photo. This is a very fun design to machine quilt... thanks for the idea Missy!

The finished size of the quilt is 19.5" x 23" ... a finished quilt after all these years!!

To see more finished UFO's finished this month, hop over to A Lovely Year of Finishes.

Now that I have finished another quilt, George and I will be at the fabric store buying some fabric to start a new quilt!

Happy Friday!

  1. That is a small Storm At Sea. Good colors for it too. I used to think I would make one some day...a big one though. But never have. And now that I do so much applique, I doubt I will. You have good piecing skills.

  8. Did you hand piece that little storm at sea? It's certainly turned out so beautifully! I've thought about ordering one of his laser cut kits and had my eye on the storm at sea. Seeing yours has certainly inspired me to get serious about ordering one myself.
