This quilt was made for a Sacramento Modern Quilt Guild Doll Quilt Challenge. I was having the hardest time coming with a plan. I kept debating on what to do. Then my mom convinced me to do a mini storm at sea, as it is my all time favorite quilting pattern.
I knew I didn't want to cut out all those tiny little templates, so I thought of another method. I used the square in a square technique.
The only reason it isn't perfect is I messed up, after double checking to making sure I wouldn't mess up. For a while it turned into a UFO, since I wasn't perfectly happy with it and I messed up the binding. So I was grumpy with it... ok maybe myself.
However, I now think it turned out pretty cute.I am hanging it up in my sewing room for a bit, as it is my favorite pattern and it is a reminder to me that I should not: to wait until the last moment, rush, and to just finish things.
