I used this quilt for my blog wall paper…..I hand pieced the mariner’s compass while taking a trip on my husband’s container ship. It was a 5 week trip to the Far East from Los Angeles. The BEST way to travel the ocean. I didn’t bring my sewing machine and did only hand projects. It was a great adventure. And I have lots of beautiful hand pieced quilts from that trip. The compass is 4 inches across.
