    :-D :-D :-D At least that's what I'm calling it. This is my own design and it will have a wider border like the mariners compass that I did and will have the same type of quilting on it. I'm going to put a covered button in the center of it as the center didn't come together quite the way I wanted, but all the seams match up tho so a covered button will hide the disalignment in the center. It is made from the left over fabric that I made some of those kindle covers out of. It was a border fabric that I found at the Goodwill last Winter.. Enjoy, Huggies, Fay

    can we have a close up of the center fabric? We don't care that the center didn't match up! I just want a closer look at that beautiful fabric!

    Pretty. I think we notice our own mistakes and are more critical of our own work than others are. Many times, others do not even notice the mistake, unless we point it out to them.

    Actually it wasn't a mistake, it just didn't line up quite right. It'll be alright tho. Some one had asked for a close up of the fabric so I gotta go snap another picture. Huggies, Fay

    That fabric is beautiful!! Did you stack-n-whack it? I wouldn't worry about that center. If you were riding by on a horse. . . isn't that what we say?

    :-D :-D :-D I didn't stack and whack. I fussy cut the fabric. I tried a one block wonder and just could not get it to go right , but still have the pieces and maybe I'll work on it again some time. Have a great day, Huggies, Fay
