This is a picture of what I thought would be a simple project. Three weeks later it is finally glued down. My husband and I bought a house on a small lake and we wanted to add a nautical theme to our rec room, hence the compass. Thanks to a quilting book I was able to get the pattern. I don't recomend trying this one, the carpet installers said they wouldn't even attempt it. They did give me some pointers on how to fill in gaps where the seams didn't quite meet.
