    Default Wedding quilt for my niece and her new husband!

    This "Storm at Sea" quilt is made entirely from my stash! Yay! I've been wanting to make one of these for quite some time. My niece's new husband is a therapist for the military. He will be traveling overseas for his first assignment outside the U.S. I wanted to make a wedding quilt for them related to the ocean since he's in the Navy. I didn't want to do a red-white-blue quilt so blue and white was the next best option. I thought the "Storm at Sea" pattern appropriate. What I find interesting about this quilt is the illusion of a circular design formed from all straight lines. What fascinates me is how clear the illusion is in the photo and yet looking at the quilt here in the house the illusion is not so apparent. Interesting.

    Beautiful quilt!
    I have found the same thing with the attic windows pattern. You have to stand away and look at the quilt from a distance to see the illusion.
