Tim,
Thank you for the lovely challenge! As soon as we clear the decks of grandkids I'll be pulling out my fabrics. I can hardly wait. I'm pretty sure I'll need focus though!
Patrice thank you for the alternate sizes. I may have to try one of each size... just because!
I can hardly wait!!!

(I know it's a coincidence, but what a super cool one!!!) I love the Mariner's Compass above all other blocks!!! Thank you!!! I am SOOOO far behind on my BoTM's, that I may never catch up, but I will have to start the process with this one & work my way backward. :mrgreen:

Thanks again both of you, Tim & Patrice!! Y'all are GREAT!!!!!

Tim...I was finally able to download the pattern... took me awhile to figure it out but I did it! I love your star but paper piecing and I don't get along at all..... so I get to sit back and watch everyone else make this beauty! Can't wait to see all the results! Good job on the pattern!!!

Tim,
WOW! I love your color choice. I went the conventional way, but I think yours is so much happier. I'll try to make another one with more daring colors like yours. Thanks for the challenge.

Your Mariners Compass was much more traditional than my Compass Star. I like it. Someday I will paper piece a huge Mariner's Compass as the center block for a large bed quilt.

Someday.

Too much to do in the mean time.

Deb, go to Clotilde online catalog. I bought a low shank for my old machine. It worked great, doesn't matter the age of the machine as much as the shank size. Some things haven't changed much with machines.


Tim, yer killin' this old lady............but I love the design!!
