    I'd really love to have your opinions on the log cabin block layout and the fabric choices around the compass please.

    Which one do you prefer?

    Either the first one or the last one. They flow best with the silhouette of the compass, IMHO.

    I vote Fourth. Seems to frame it up and make the compass special. Hubby (untrained eye) likes the first one.
    good luck

    I like the first, but the last is a close second.

    I guess I always have to be different..LOL

    I really like the second one. I think it makes it look 3D. I like the way the compass really jumps out at you.

    the first one really frames the compass and sets it off as the focal point. Some applique vines and leaves would be gorgeous in the tan areas.

    My votes is for number 2. It absolutely pops, and looks so 3 dimensional, and then my next choice is number 4 :)

    IMHO I would go with #4. I like the extra space around the compass. #1 is nice but I lose the compass a bit in the blue.

    number 4 is my choice..i had to look twice when i first looked at them as it looked like your mariners compass was on a wooden parquetry floor but then i realised it was fabric..
