Storm At Sea Quilt Designs from Inklingo
Would you have recognized this lovely quilt as Storm At Sea? It is!
Ruby Sea was designed by Pines & Curley in Electric Quilt for the Inklingo Love the Lines
contest in 2012 and the shapes were printed on fabric with Inklingo!
Pines & Curley assigned a number to each block
variation. It was necessary to prepare a Cheat Sheet
and also to make careful notes to stay organized.
ELECTRIC QUILT PROJECT FILE
This elegant quilt is being quilted now.
"There are several things I learned during the process, especially since many of the blocks were unique based on the colour placement. I used the EQ printout in two ways. One version to cut out the various blocks to figure out how many I needed of each one. The second EQ printout was intact with the block number. That sheet was used as a reference for the quilt assembly."
Pines & Curley gave me permission to share the EQ project file with you!
Thank you for sharing your work with us, Pines & Curley!
This might be what you think of, when you think of Storm At Sea. Whether you prefer traditional or innovative designs, Storm At Sea is simpler to sew than you might think—despite the odd angles and points.
When you print the shapes on fabric with Inklingo, there are no weird rulers, no templates and no paper piecing
Notice the odd angles on the corners (above) . . .
. . . so the precision corners match up perfectly when you sew!
When you have a line to cut along and a line to sew along, it restores the pleasure of sewing fabric, not paper.
We love it when simple shapes let us create so many different variations!
The triangles and squares used in Storm At Sea are extremely versatile for other designs, like Square in a Square, Flying Geese
, and more. There are examples on the Main Storm At Sea Page
I cannot show you all of the designs here, but there is a Gallery of Storm At Sea Quilts
on the website and more ideas in the Storm At Sea Design Book
($20 value, half price or free).
The Inklingo Storm At Sea Design Book includes a unique two-page sewing guide to keep beside the machine. It simplifies everything.
This double Storm At Sea example is one of the worksheets included in the Storm At Sea shape collections. It can be made in a choice of 5 sizes!
• With 12 inch collection (16 inch block)—80 x 80
• With 9 inch collection (12 inch block)—60 x 60
• With 6.75 inch collection (9 inch block) —45 x 45
• With 6 inch collection (8 inch block)—40 x 40
• With 4.5 inch collection (6 inch block)—30 x 30
This is another intriguing way to look at these wonderful blocks too—on point.
