    Honey's quilt

    I just finished this quilt for my beloved Aunt Honey, who lost both her husband and her mother within a few months of each other. I started with the Mariner's Compass, in honor of my late uncle, whose proudest accomplishment was serving in the Navy in WWII. I then built the quilt around it, row by row, using Kaffe Fassett prints almost exclusively. The last picture is the pieced back.

    I tried to make it very cheerful and 'sunny.' I think this quilt is my best work to date and am very happy with how it turned out.

    Thanks for looking! I haven't posted in a while.

    What a beautiful quilt. I love the design, the mariners compass in the middle surrounded by all those colorful pinwheels. The colors are so bright and cheery, and I hope it adds some warmth to your Aunts bedroom.

    I just LOVE the fabrics and colors!
    A dog is not "almost human" and I know of no greater insult to the canine race than to describe it as such.

    Thank you all for your kind comments! Thanks also to those who responded to my question last week about whether or not to wash the quilt before sending it out. Thank goodness for your input, because when I washed it, a little bit of the Mariner's Compass came undone and required a little repair!

    Really appreciate the support, quilters are good people!!
