Storm at Sea Block for a swap

I really didn't enjoy making this block.  The directions I used were from Quilters' Cache (the Marcia Hohn site), and required a step where I was to make a paper template, then measure out a plastic template 1/4" larger all around, and then cut out the fabric from there.  It turned out I could have a) rotary cut the rectangles, then b) cut them from one corner to the other for the corners, and could have made large rectangles and cut from the middles to the corners for the large diamonds.   At any rate, it's finished, and I think it looks pretty nice.



If you'd like to see what a whole (or nearly whole) quilt looks like using Storm at Sea blocks, visit Martha's blog Quiltcontemplation. This post shows them all put together.

I think you would have like the Inklingo better for sure. I think I need to go and sew some of mine together. Are you exchanging all storm at sea blocks? or different ones?
