    He does great work. Do you mind making him 2 of those Mariner's Compass quilts so he can start one for me? LOL :mrgreen: Enjoy your beautiful gift.

    Definitely worthy of a Mariner's Compass. He did an excellent job!

    This is very beautiful workmanship and small payment to make (laughter). I will look forward to seeing your Mariner's compass. I keep thinking I would like to make one of these so please share your experience as well (smile). Thank you for sharing.

    Your hubby has certainly earned his Mariner's Compass - beautiful work space.

    That is fantastic! Can you imagine what you'd have to pay for something like that if your DH didn't make it for you?

    As payment for this, I'm making him a big mariner's compass quilt. He's wanted one for years and I was afraid to attempt the paper piecing. I found that it's not that difficult, just very time consuming.
    Very nice craftsmanship on the desk, as I'm sure it will be on the quilt too. What colors are you using?

    What a wonderful DH. It's a beautiful piece of furniture. Be sure to post your payment, we can't wait to see it.
