Storm (at Sea) is over

 Another week, another finish. I am sure I won't sustain that rhythm for very long but let's make the most of it while it last!

I picked up my mini Storm at Sea top that had been ready for quilting since last January and had re-joined the UFO pile. I had originally started the piecing in 2010, not sure why it took me so long to finally get back to it really!

I found a very nice fabric in my stash, one that had been there for over 15 years for sure. 

The quilting is a very straight forward stitch in the ditch, with my favorite King Tut's thread.

As for the binding, another fabric from my stash, a batik this time, to keep with the top, that I finished hand sewing yesterday.

One less UFO in my pile and one more crossed off my PhD list.

And I can happily report that I spent at least 4x15 minutes in the sewing room this week working on this UFO.

  1. Very pretty, Celine! Congratulations on finishing your Storm at Sea! I've been wanting to make one of those for ages. I love your version with the purples and yellow centers.

  2. Congratulations on a very pretty finish. It always feels so good to get one of the older UFOs off the list. Congrats on the stitching time last week. Happy stitching this week.

  3. Thtat's so pretty And the back is perfect for it.
