Line of Storms



When visiting the desert, I have always been surprised by how quickly the storms erupt. As the skies change rapidly, the colors of the desert intensify.

The colors in the McKenna’s Sea Salt collection for Hoffman reminded me of the desert. So, I modifed the shape of the traditional block, Storm at Sea, to reflect the shortened time frame. These shorter blocks were placed in a line, much like the storms form a line across the mesa.

The gradient fabric was echoed in the coloring of the blocks. This mirrors the color strata often seen in the desert arroyos and mesas.

Paper templates are included in the pattern to simplify piecing.
