Unmixing Remix: Storm at Sea — Part 3

Posted on by in

Today brings us to the Sea. Or the Sound. Ok, so it’s really Elliott Bay.

While I’d like to say that the water here somehow inspired this quilt, in reality it was drawn up two years ago when we had absolutely no idea we’d be living here. So we’ll just pretend.

The fabulous waters in the beautiful Pacific Northwest inspired this twist to the traditional Storm at Sea quilt. It nests blocks inside one another for a tunnel-like illusion. This project has instructions for three sizes: crib, lap and twin/queen.

This version of the quilt is shown in Tula Pink’s Neptune collection, perfect for any quilt having to do with the Sea — or anything really. It’s a beautiful collection which I own approximately 3,928 yards of. (And it matched the backdrop of the city so well. It also matching my dining room where it will soon be appearing.) Sorry, back on topic…

I’m also quite in love with Harbor Island (in the background up there). There’s just something about the cranes and boats and shipping containers that I find amazingly cool. It’s not quite as cool when I get stuck on Alaskan Way with all the trucks hauling the shipping containers to and fro, but I guess it’s a necessary evil. Wait a sec, that wasn’t really on topic either…

I’m also quite mesmerized by the ferries. Watching them go back and forth all day long. We can see them from the house – day or night – except for when the fog sets in and then we can’t even see the neighbor’s house. I always joke to myself that the Bainbridge and Bremerton ferries are drag racing each other. This is perhaps only funny to *me*. I’m doing really poorly when it comes to actually talking about the book and the quilts, eh?

So this concludes my random musings about Seattle with a little bit of Quilt Remix sprinkled in. That’s the other, more traditional, example there — Joanna Figueroa’s Mill House Inn.

The book is now available for purchase in the shop.

Coming tomorrow: Maeve’s choice! Or Mommy’s…

    I love the “water” one too. *S* Maybe that’s because I used to live out in Seattle in Wallingford, looking right down on Lake Union, and I also miss seeing the ferries and yes…..even the huge cranes for shipping.

    I’m out of $$ for this month, but I have your book on my Amazon wishlist. So soon.
