Finished Flimsy: Storm at Sea/Snail’s Trail

Storm at Sea / Snail’s Trail – Finished Flimsy – December 2022

I started this at my guild’s October workshop with Wendy Mathson.

This was how far her instructions and her workshop took us and I got to this point pretty quickly after the workshop. I had posted about it being finished here. But almost immediately, I decided it wasn’t exactly finished and I started working on the border which finished the stars. This was something I learned in a Linda Ballard class a long time ago when I started the Dancing with the Stars quilt. That was to finish the stars in the border. So I took that and finished the stars here.

I started working on it in earnest during my mini retreat in October and discovered I didn’t have enough of the purple grunge. And I spent November at one quilt shop or another looking for that purple grunge. There are so many. I finally found it at Candy’s in Reseda, CA. Thankfully not too far from my house!

And just like my recently finished Arlene Arnold flimsy, Lucretia’s Journey, I absolutely love how this turned out and would like to make it again but bigger. Wendy emailed us blank templates to color on so we can play with color and design for this project. I’ve put this on my one day some day list. There are so many quilts I want to make but I do want to explore the different options I can do with this.

Happy quilting friends,

Melanie
