I FINISHED THE MARINER'S COMPASS


I finished making my mariner's compass for one of the blocks in my newest quilt. I really enjoyed making it. It isn't as hard as it looks.. seriously.

Added 9/21 - There have been some requests for details about the compass. It is from a CD version of Judy Mathison's Mariners compasses.
the CD has many patterns, the only drawback is it prints only one pattern piece per page of paper. No matter what the size. This compass is 16". The sections with the dark yellows are paper pieced, the rest isn't. It will be the center of a normal sized quilt of more compasses, and New York Beauty blocks.

If I had one ounce of your talent! How large or I probably should say, how small is this?

Oh my goodness, it is gorgeous! And I'm afraid of it. It's definitely too hard for me!

Waoh! It's so beautiful! Very nice colors, and so well done, I'm very impatient to see the whole quilt, with the NY Beauties!
