    "Storm at Sea" sample block - will these colors work?

    Sotrm at Sea Block - 2-25-14 001.jpgSotrm at Sea Block - 2-25-14 002.jpgSotrm at Sea Block - 2-25-14 004.jpg I've been working on this sample block for parts of 3 days! I wanted to try 1 block before taking my class on Mar. 8 to see if the colors would work. I've had my moments of frustration with this block, to be sure. Lots of little triangles, many points to match, etc. Lots of bumpy seams. I'm sure I'll be using my Clover pen at lot! I discovered I had better luck squaring the blocks if I made some of my pcs. 1/8" larger than the pattern said. These are pics of the various fabrics I plan to use (not all blocks will be the same). I included a front & back side of the block so you get an idea of how many pcs. are involved. (I know some of you have made this quilt already.) Traditionally, it is made with only 3 colors, but I've seen some beautiful scrappy ones on the web. The lady teaching this class has her scrappy SAS quilt posted on the Lyons Quilting facebook site.

      There are many other on here with far more knowledge than I. But I wanted to tell you, that I like your quilt block and the colors that you have chosen.

        I think it is a great color combination for what it is worth.

                          I love the color combo! I'm stashing for a black/gray/yellow quilt myself.

                            Some answers are as clear as the nose on our face.... you just have to look to see that they work, and they work well! I love it.

                              Sometimes, when there's a raging fire,
                              it's best not to try to put it out with gasoline.
