Sparkling Stormy Seas

Two of the batiks I’m using in the Stormy Seas blocks have some metallic gold which I’m hoping will give the impression of sunlight sparkling on the waves.  I couldn’t resist making at least one block with both of those batiks.  It’s going to be fun when all the blocks are done and I start playing with their placement.  I’m thinking that I may concentrate the blocks which have one of the metallic batiks in one area to really give the impression of light on the water.  But that’s way off in the future.

More of the setting pieces are added to the baby quilt top.  It’s going to take slightly longer than I had anticipated to add them, but I think I’m still on target to have the top completed by the end of the weekend.  Between now and then I’ll get the flannel for the backing washed so that as soon as the top is done and pressed I can get it basted and start the quilting.

Smudge is still being syringe fed, although he is eating a bit more every day on his own.  So there is progress.  And he definitely feels like he’s gaining more weight. Here he was having a snooze after a feeding.

  1. Love the Storm at Sea block. The colors are so rich. Wow, I am impressed that you will have the baby quilt done this weekend! It is going to be great with the flannel. Glad to hear that Smudge is gaining weight. That must be a relief for you.


  2. Hello Cathi! I’m happy to hear that Smudge is eating better!
    That blue-turqoise block looks so beautiful! You could see if some stitching/cuilting with ‘metallic’ colour thread would be suitable to emphasize that part. Perhaps you have thought that or it doesn’t look good…you will see…
    I think it’s going to be wonderful!
    it’s always so nice to see your lovely cats!
