Two Halves Make a Whole

Hello Everyone,

Remember my post from a couple of days ago?  Click here to see.  I have been working hard and now have the 74 X 74 version of my Mariner's Compass.  There is more to come though.  It will end up being 105 X 105 and wait until you see that!!

Let's take the tour...


This is the center, I am really in love with the colors that I chose. Bright and bold, that is my motto.


Here is the octagonal version.  I could choose to leave it like this and it would make a great table topper for a large table.  But I am not stopping there.


Can you see just a glimpse here?


It is getting corners to square it up.  They are not sewn on yet, but....


They are now... SWOOOON!!  Stay tuned for more progress yet to come and you will love it... I hope!  I know I can't wait to get started.

You know what was the best thing though?  When I showed this to my hubby, he said he loved it and that it was very striking!  I think I will keep him.


Until Next Time...

The mister has great taste and an eye for style! :o) I love how the center explodes then the corners look like it's radiating off of the quilt. Fan-tab-ulous!

Stunningly beautiful! Where can I find the pattern please?

Jackie said...

HI Wanda, I hope you check back here, because I couldn't send you a private e-mail as your profile is a no reply. This pattern will not be available until January and will only be available through Certified Teachers and shops like me. So stay tuned!

Jackie, this is truly the best Mariner's Compass quilt I've ever seen. Spectacular. I hope you enter it in several quilt shows! I'm looking forward to seeing the pattern when it comes available. I'd love to make one. Beautiful.
