Here is the mariners compass I made for my husband after he completed my sewing cabinet. I'm not happy with it...too many mistakes and uneven borders. I told him to use it as a blanket on our sailboat and I'll make him a better one from batiks. I learned a lot about paper piecing and also learned I'm not going to do my own design again!

You are too hard on yourself. I love it and can't see anything wrong with it. Not that there's anything wrong with making him another...

I'm sorry you aren't happy with your quilt, because I think it's stunning. Your use of color is just amazing!I can't help but think that you'll be much happier with it once you have it quilted.

Why dont you let the gift recipient decide? It is a shame to give someone something this nice and then tell them you don't want them to use it in the house! Surely it would get ruined on the boat?

It will be fine on the sailboat. We have two sleeping berths that are clean and cozy. I'm backing it with novelty sailboat fabric.
I made it because he's wanted one for years. I'll improve on the next one.

Your quilt is beautiful, I can't see anything wrong with it. I think we're all kind of critical of our own work because we want it to be perfect for whoever is receiving it. Where can I find that pattern? I'd like to do it for my dad.
