    ladies, I am not sure how to proceed. I had a plan but am having to change it because of the difficulty. I have decided to just do stripes (maybe) between the corners but not sure how to do them. where to place the fabric and stuff. I had thought of doing white triangles next to the white parts so it looks like they are on point but gave up that idea because I have no pattern to follow for them. so going with stripes. tell me what you think so far.

    this is the fabric that I am thinking about doing for the stripes.

    this will be the boarder and backing fabric.

    That is gorgeous. What do you think about a small stripe of white down the center of the dark piece? Just to break up the two blues somewhat? Anyway just an idea.

    First...I have the same pair of shoes. :lol:
    When you say on point, do you mean turning the entire quilt?
    This is a mariner compass design right? I am new to quilting so just learning.
    I love the choice of fabrics. The blue and and white are perfect. Blue water and sky...white clouds.

    When I look at the design being a compass...I see the 4 corner pieces as North, South, East, West. Would it work to turn the whole quilt so the corners are in the middle of the top and middle of sides. Instead of using them as corner pieces. If this is making any sense.
    Anyway....I love this everything matches up perfectly. Is this paper piecing?
    Great Job... :thumbup: :thumbup:

    I didn't do it as pp but it could have been done that way. the corners are supposed to be the corners. the block is actually already on point. I was just going to make acutal points. but think that it is going to be really hard to get them right.
