    Congratulations on getting thru the Mariners Compass. I made one as well. It is a king size in total measurements. I also used a rope quilted around the outside of the star, in between the lines. My star is 36 inches and had to get my hubby to draft it for me as there was no pattern big enough for it. I made it for my son's 26 year retirement from the Coast Guard. Jan

    Thanks Susan. Then I had to figure out how to hang it on the wall. The backing is an old sheet, so I just used a hot glue gun and tacked it to the wall. I figure it's never going to move, and I wasn't that worried about the back. It worked well, it is hanging nice and flat against the wall.

    I am thinking about doing the same with the sampler quilt hanging over my bed. I used tacks and it is starting to sag.

    Your points look perfect from here. Clever!

    Thanks everyone. I'm tickled you like it. I used this pattern:

    http://www.equilter.com/cgi-bin/webc...23111007972.58

    I bought it at a LQS. It comes with the interfacing and you sew directly on it, and do not remove it, so it adds stability.

    You can search for it by name: Mariner's Compass Pattern
