As a teacher of geometry for many years I was first attracted to patchwork and quilting by the lines and angles of the traditional blocks. Storm at Sea is one of my favourites. It is amazing just how many designs can emerge with different uses of colour. I also indulge in machine applique and embroidery so I added the lighthouse to fill out the rectangular quilt in "my style". I have to say that in the time it took to make four four inch Storm at Sea blocks I probably could have made a queen size quilt!
