Several years ago I taught a Storm at Sea workshop for the Original Sewing and Quilt Expo. The Education Director fell in love with this quilt and wanted me to teach it in a 3 hour time slot. I told her it would NOT work because the cutting would take up most of the class time. She said: "Well, get the kits laser cut." Gasp! I couldn't do that! Really? Was I ever wrong!
As you can see, this is all straight seam sewing. But the use of two different angles creates the illusion of curves. I added the little boats in the four corners. Do you like them?

I have put the class notes (in color) and illustrations into a 7 page pdf and I offer it for sale at Craftsy for $6.00. Everything is rotary cut (even the 5" boats). The foundation paper piecing pattern is also included for those who would rather paper piece it.
Here is my first sample:

I make a lot of samples when I teach a class. I have all sorts of block parts hanging around, probably enough to make another quilt! I guess you could say I like making this quilt!
Now for the giveaway. I blogged about this quilt awhile back: Storm at Sea and I had kits I was selling. You can see them below.

This kit needs a new home. This is only open to USA residents (unless you're willing to pay the $15 US postage for international shipping; I just checked). Leave a comment telling me which of the two quilts above you like best.
Contest is over after the Super Bowl Sunday night. US residents get free postage.
You can always buy the Storm at Sea pattern for $6.00, no matter where you live!
