Design Wall Monday #21

I am so excited to have finished piecing my Flynn Storm At Sea kit!
I am very happy with how it turned out and love the watery look of the batik fabrics. It measures about 15" x 18" without the border (which I haven't picked out yet). I will enjoy admiring it on my design wall while I figure out how to quilt it.
Hop on over to Judy's blog to get lots of design wall inspiration - Patchwork Times.
This is the third Flynn kit that I have pieced and I have enjoyed each one - click here and here to see the other ones. I have a 4th much more complex kit that I need to consult with the reps about how to sew the blocks. I see on their blog that they will be at the Vermont Quilt Festival in 3 weeks...I intend to lose a bundle of my hard earned cash getting more kits at their booth! Anyone else in blog land going to Vermont?!?

Oh wait.....do you hear that.......yeah.......I do too!! It's the INSANITY that has escaped Kathy's body finally!!!!

15x18"?!?!?! I remember uttering the insanity plea to you earlier as you were sharing the size of these tiny blocks! You simply MUST take a picture of this with a penny placed on the quilt so that the perspective can be oooh'd and aaaah'd.

AMAZING finish.

Beautiful colors but I sure would never work on something so tiny.

I am going to Vermont. I have seen their kits before and wondered about them. I will definitely check out the booth.

I have always wanted to make this quilt since I started quilting many years ago. Fab and this is one quilt where I would go buy the water color batiks. A show stopper !

Love that quilt. I cannot believe that it is that small. Lots of work. Wish I could go to Vermont. I am sure that it is a lot cooler than Louisiana. I am about to cook down here.

Jean said...

All I can say is WOW....I can't believe the intricateness of this compared to the size. I agree, put a coin on it to show the size.

Debbie said...

What an incredible quilt! I can't believe how little it is...great job on your piecing.

Bonnie said...

Amazing job Kathy!! I cannot believe the size. You definately need many years of skills to do this one. I strive for those skills to come to me! Great work!!

Kathy, a beautiful quilt. Having done this quilt with you years ago, I knew it would be magnificent. Have a grant time in Vermont and bring back lots of goodies for fall sewing.
