The Hippy Storm-at-Sea quilt by Terry Druga


Medusa Tree in Falls Park, downtown Greenville, SC

Hello! I am Terry Druga and you can find me on Instagram as tooheycohen. I love this “What Shade Are You” blog hop series by RJR Fabrics that lets regular quilters like me step out of our comfort zones. I was so excited to pick colors from their color cards – such beautiful fabrics! I love traditional quilt blocks made with modern fabrics so the hippy in me chose to make a Storm-At-Sea quilt in shades of purple, blue and green.

The colors I chose for my quilt top are:

Gale Force 282
Pewter 351
Amethyst 215
Purple Haze 279
Marvelous 332
Horizon 354
Turks & Caicos 292
Riviera 274
Kelly Green 127
Sprout 249
Neon 348



I was so happy with the layout of my blocks, but was very nervous about how to quilt it. I decided to follow the natural wavy pattern that is made by the Storm-at-sea blocks. The lines feel organic and give the quilt some movement and texture. It also gave me a chance to play with my new collection of Aurifil 28wt threads! I love how everything came together.


A huge thank you to the team at RJR Fabrics! You answered all my questions and were very helpful. And the RJR Cotton Supreme Solids are wonderful to work with! I hope this blog series inspires you to create something new!
