Storm at Sea & Secret Sewing!

My daughter was over last night so we worked on the Storm at Sea quilt.  It is now one piece!  We tried it out on our queen size bed and have decided we will add one more row of pattern around all four edges (the diamonds and small squares) before adding a strip of the background print around all four sides as well.  Then we will have to decide if the binding will be just one of the prints used in the quilt or if we will use multiple prints.  We were also looking at pantographs to decide which one to use but didn't choose one yet.

And in case you were thinking that the blog has been really quiet and I haven't been sewing, it is just that what I am working on is going to be a present for a family member who looks at my blog so I don't want to spoil the surprise.  I started on Sunday from scratch and as of yesterday early afternoon, I have a completed quilt top, approximately 53" x 70", a pieced backing and prepared binding, so all that is left is the quilting and binding!  The pantograph has also already been chosen and I can't even tell you what that is or it would give away the surprise!  Maybe a sneak peak at the binding would be ok though....

Linking up with Crazy Mom Quilts for Finish it up Friday.
