More Quilt Show Eye Candy

Barb and Anita with the Serendipity (Raffle) Quilt for 2012. I know others helped with making this beauty, but don't have their names. This quilt was 4 Storm at Sea kits from John Flynn - Barb said they needed 4 to get enough of the right colors - (not sure what that meant). When I saw this quilt folded up, it was beautiful, but when it was on the hanging rack, the complicated design pattern became visible. This is a quilt that you want to step closer to, i.e., "it brings the viewer in." Barb, the math teacher, explained that they made it in 4 quadrants, one quadrant at a time, so they could assemble the design correctly. It's another stunning quilt, machine quilted by Anita (Prairie Creations) with straight lines, following what appears to be curves, but are not. I really want to win this one! I seem to remember they are batiks.

I can't stop looking at that quilt. It is gorgeous. You just keep seeing more and more in it the longer you look. Hope you win!

I'm so happy you posted this! This one has been on my "to do" list ever since it appeared in Fons & Porter's magazine. I've got a whole box of batiks waiting for its number to come up.

I never thought about combining more than one kit to make a larger quilt -- got to keep that tip in the memory banks.

Good luck, I hope you win it!!

I really like the Storm at Sea pattern. I done a mini one last fall, reminds me I still need to be quilted.
