What are you most proud of? The illusion of movement in this stunning quilt is created by straight-line stitching as well as the gradation between lights and darks.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Sort your old denims into four or five contrasting shades: light, medium-light, medium, medium-dark, and darks. Press seams OPEN when assembling quilt blocks.

I made a cushion cover using this quilt block in the early 80's. Although it looks complex, it is very easy to make.

Love, love the movement. Its beautiful as is but I'm wondering about this pattern in bright colors, or just blues...hmmmm.

It looks great in brights too, just as long as you have enough contrast in tone to be able to see the pattern emerge.

Sew pretty. I made this many years ago and put tiny pieced houses in the middle square. I love mine.

Great idea to put something in the middle squares. Could work as a memory quilt too. I'm thinking about putting my son's military patches in some of the squares.

I am going to make a queen storm at sea for my granddaughter who is getting married this summer. I need to know fabric requirements for that size. I have done a lot of paper piecing, but think I might just make this without paper.
