My First

Mariner's Compass!
I agonized over the fabric for this, and didn't like what I'd brought to the workshop (Brenda Henning, Quilt Symposium of Alabama), but I persevered until lunch time when I went shopping in the quilters mall.  I wasn't looking for a new fabric, but the floral "spoke" to me and said "I might work." So I took it back to the workshop with me and love the result. The mariner's compass in the previous post "needed" my original center fabric choice.
I am so glad it worked out.
NOW, spend some quality time with the hubby and pack for Mother's.

It's beautiful, but way to hard looking for me.
I will be at Robin's Wednesday, wish we had time to get together, but maybe soon.

Yes, it's perfectly delightful now. What a beautiful masterpiece to treasure.

You did a wonderful job and that is not an easy pattern to piece.
Have fun on your trip and a safe journey.

Every time I visit, I wistfully think back to my quilting days. You will inspire me to pick up a needle again soon I think.

Enjoy your trip!
