Storm at sea

I went to my patchwork group today because I can't attend next time there is a Saturday meeting, I should be on my way back from our ski trip. Today we were doing Foundation Piecing Storm at Sea. I knew I wanted to do mine in purple/violet but I wasn't sure about the background between dark (black/grey) or light. I took both options with me and finally choose to go with the lighter option (maybe because the weather was so miserable, I didn't want to add more darkness!) I also decided to zest it up with a small yellow-green square in the middle of my big blocks. I am glad I went with the light background. I did one of each block today to see what it would look like and have a guide for colour placements for further blocks. Here is a preview of the units:
What do you think?

This morning I also found a siggy in my mail. This one came from Femija in Germany. I will send her one tomorrow.

Off to the sewing machine now as I am on a mission to finish a bag... Hopefully I'll be able to post pictures soon.



  1. Hi Celine!
    I love 'storm at sea' but haven't had a chance to make one yet. I like the light background, too and you yellow compliment your blues and purples...Can't wait to see more!
    Have fun on your skying trip!

  2. Hi Celine, First I recieve your siggy thanks for that.
