Quilt: Graphed Mariner's Compass

Graphed Mariner's Compass

      This took about a month for this to go from sketch to quilt. It's entirely pieced. I tie quilted because winter was coming fast and it has 1 1/2" thick batting. Brendan picked out the fabric from our local thrift store so there's all sorts of textures and textiles in the pieces. This is all pieced.

     This is my original design. For some reason I thought graph paper would help with designing. That only lasted through one design, but my son liked the design enough that he picked it out for his winter quilt. I sketched this around 1989.
