C Jean Horst's Storm at Sea Quilt vividly depicts the rolling waves of a stormy sea. Surprisingly, the illusion of waves is created by a few geometric shapes - squares, triangles, rectangles and diamonds. Here, C Jean Horst changed the 100 % cotton color pallet to emphasize different elements within the design which resulted in twinkling and stunning stars and wavy lines, creating a new look for an old design. This in an interesting old scriptural-based pattern taken from Mark 4:37-39 NIV where Jesus calms the Storm when he said "Quiet! Be still!" and the wind died down and it was completely calm. Lovely heirloom with the comforting connection to scripture.
The back of the quilt is covered with a fine tone on tone creamy 100% cotton print. The quilting density is good, averaging about 110 linear inches of stitching per square foot. The stitching is exceptional with about 9 stitches per inch. This quilter has worked extra long to keep her small stitches even throughout the entire quilt. The back corner tag documents the name of the quilt as well as the maker, the hand quilted by an Amish friend, and a note about made in USA. From Lancaster Country Hand Quilted Quilts - Capital of the World. So different and unique. Generous queen size that could be turned sideways on a king bed. A high quality quilt.
