    Mariner's compass quilt

    I just finished the last panel for a mariner's compass quilt that I was commisoned to make for a friend. I was scared to death - didn't know if I could possibly do it - I have never paper-pieced until this quilt - keep in mind I have only been quilting for about 2 yrs. Please be kind.
    With that said- I am super happy how its turning out - I haven't sewn the segments together - tomorrow I am picking out the background fabric. Anybody have ideas about the background fabric - I am thinking the dark blue but I am open to suggestion.

    Otis, it is fantastic! Audition some different colors for your background...maybe black would make it pop!!
    Please show again, after you decide!

    Marvelous. (Yours is much better than my first, which a dying friend requested.)

    I think a dark blue would go better with it, since you already have blue in it.

    It's beautiful! I haven't learned curved piecing yet because I'm a scaredy cat. Yours might just look fabulous on white!

    You did a great job and especially since you are only quilting for a couple years.

    You did a great job. Yes, I think dark blue would be a perfect background.
