Storm At Sea Quilt Pattern
Hurricane season goes through November 30. Frankly, I wish it was over tomorrow. At least the peak of the season is coming to an end.
As I write this, two storms are still churning in the Atlantic ocean, Maria and Lee. Fortunately, they are no longer a threat to land. I wanted to share a quilt pattern and the one that stood out to me was Storm At Sea.
This is a beautiful quilt pattern that looks very difficult, but by using templates or paper piecing it can be easily put together. You can use an endless number of color combinations to get different pattern results.
