Storm at Sea: From Traditional to Contemporary, an Ocean of Design Possibilities
Design explorations using the traditional "Storm at Sea" block, based on my book, "A New Light on Storm at Sea Quilts". Why do those straight seams give the feeling of curves? How can a century-year-old block pattern work with current fabrics and color combinations for a fresh new look? You'll be amazed at how this versatile block can produce such a wide variety of unique quilt designs.

I like to use quilts to teach some aspect of quilting - how to use scraps, principles of color and design, or new ways to piece traditional patterns. Here is my approach: I don't believe your guild members are too interested in seeing slides of my dog, my studio, or my latest travel adventure. I think they would rather see quilts - lots of quilts - and they will enjoy the program even more if they go home feeling that they have learned something new.


Storm at Sea/ TRIMplate piecing
My TRIMplate rulers are not templates. They are unique tools that allow you to trim after you sew for greater accuracy. All fabric pieces start as squares or rectangles, so they are easily and quickly cut from strips. This method uses no templates, no paper or foundation piecing, and there is no bias on the outer edge of the blocks. Students choose one of 3 variations to make. (See samples below.) All patterns are supplied - students are not required to purchase TRIMplate tools, books or kits.

Skill levels from confident beginner (can rotary cut with confidence and sew a quarter-inch seam) to advanced.

Offered as a 6-hour or 12-hour (2 day) workshop.

In the 2-day workshop we explore more variations of the basic blocks and how to make them using the same TRIMplate tools. Students can add to their project with Snail's Trail, Triangle-in-a-square, Kite blocks, and Half-rectangles, for example. These new units combine to make innovative borders or unique new blocks.
