Deana: One Monthly Goal COMPLETE!

I have joined Patchwork Times monthly drawing to help me finish some quilts this year.  The number 9 was drawn for February and my #9 was Storm at Sea.  Click this link to see every one else's progress on this project.  I decided to also make it my "One Monthly Goal."

I am so so so excited to have my Storm at Sea Quilt (One Montly Goal and/or my OPAM) actually completed!  It was a tight month and I saved this one for last.  I was under the gun to achieve my goal but I did finish one day early.   I really love how this one turned out!

To give a little background history on this quilt, it was a family round robin.  We draw names and plan a quilt for whoever we draw.  We purchase the fabric, cut the whole thing out, and put it into kits.  The kits are passed around each month so we all sew a section together.  The rule is that we have to have a completed top when it finds its way to its owner (minus borders).  It was a lot of fun!  The year we did this one we all started with a fat quarter bundle of the same blue fabrics.  I love how mine turned out because I always wanted a Storm at Sea quilt but never wanted to piece one.

P.S. There are closer up photos of this quilt on yesterday's post!
