Inspiring Quilters, Stitch by Stitch
After taking a class with Judy Matheson in 2006, this one is finally finished. It began with the Mariner's Compass but I didn't have my stash with me for the class, so found the results a bit boring. I posted the circle on my blog asking for advice. Besides, I didn't want to add corners and make it square. One of my readers said it looked like a big sun. I found several seascapes in my pile of photos and wound up with this. Since the compass/sun is nearly 36", this turned out to be 72" x 96" and a monster to quilt - some on my HQ-16 and some on my Baby Lock. We do have a place to hang it. My favorite part is the water. I used tulle to make the bottom half of the sun look a bit like a reflection.
