Storm at Sea Finish!

My Storm at Sea quilt is complete!  If you remember, this quilt was only a top when it was my day on the Island Batik Storm at Sea blog hop.  Click here to read my original post.

Disclaimer:  The products used to make this quilt were generously given to me by Island Batik and industry partners.
We had a terrific cloudy day to take photos, all day until I hung the quilt.  Then the sun came out and made tree shadows all over the side of my house and the quilt.  Oh well.  My son said it makes it more charming.  Now that I'm inside writing the post it's cloudy again.

This quilt features the Petal Pathway fabric collection by Kathy Engle for Island Batik.  This fabric should be available in local quilt shops now.  I love the way the colors glow against the solid black.

I quilted an allover swirl design with purple Aurifil thread, 40 wt., color #2545.  

The batting is Hobbs Tuscany Collection Supreme 100% Unbleached Cotton.  I won this batting in Hobbs Creating for the Holidays Instagram contest.  Let me tell you, it is plush!  It is the most plush cotton batting I have ever tried!  Wow is it nice.

While I was taking photos, Trail Mix came over to see what was happening.  "Why is this quilt hanging on the side of the house?", she seemed to be asking.  "How can I cuddle it?".  

I will be sleeping under this quilt tonight, for New Years.  I'll probably be sleeping long before midnight.  Happy New Year!  Welcome 2022!  Here's a few more pretty pictures:
