My daughter (azchrisg) and I took some classes last week at Celebrate! Quilts quilt camp here in Flagstaff. One of the classes we took was a Mariner's Compass using Quiltsmart foundation piecing that was taught by Carmen Geddes. The class was a lot of fun and the result were fantastic! (Chris posted a thread here Mariner's Compass Quilt with a pic of hers) and here is a picture of mine. These are just the center of the quilt tops and will soon have background and borders added to complete the tops.
These "compasses" measure about 45" in diameter; very dramatic looking!
