    I can't decide whether to just continue using the 1" squares or use maybe the dark blue as cornerstone blocks or maybe it needs something else...any ideas ? The small squares are just laid out..they look like I sewed them on crooked don't they? LOL!

    Sandpat that is beautiful. I like the squares in the edge it brings all the colors out in the quilt and keeps the focus on the mariners compass. Very nice job.

    do you have enough of the right fabrics left to make one more inner circle? if you did, and divided it into quarters (plus seam allowances), you could put one on each corner of the quilt. it would keep the compass theme intact, be an unexpected bonus in the border and ... the best part ... rounded corners are soooooo much easier to bind. :P

    Wow! I love your outer edges! They really frame those gorgeous blocks. What a quilt. That's a show-stopper! My favorite colors too! I think anything you add to to the corners will really take it over the top! It would look good with just a frame of your colorful squares too. I can't wait to see this one quilted. So pretty!

    Your quilt is gorgeous! I like Patrice's idea for the corners, but I can't think that anything you do would not be perfect. Can't wait to see th finished product.

    Awesome Quilt! I love the blues and your compass blocks are amazing! I agree that the patchwork looks mosaic and really compliments the design! :D :D :D
