This is the fifth block for the Treasure Chest Quilt that I am making per Eleanor Burns and Quilt in a Day's facebook page. http://www.facebook.com/#!/quiltinaday
What I've learned is that blocks that may look difficult may just require more exacting attention. I love working on this quilt because each block I've made so far is entirely new to me but is traditional, so I'm enjoying making them.
When I did a search for some history on the Storm at Sea block, I found that it is a very popular block that when used as the sole block in a quilt can create many different designs depending on how the block is put together and the choice of fabrics. Two sites mention that the design is based on the New Testament event when Jesus quiets the sea from the fishing boat, which is a nice testament to the faith of so many quilters of the past.
Enjoy your crafting and Go Patriots!
God Bless You!
