Miniature Mariner’s Compass

It is the start of the online bloggers quilt show, so get ready to have some fun!  The Bloggers Quilt Festival is sponsored by Amy’s Creative Side blog with giveaways.  There are eleven categories you can enter.  My first entry is this little Mariner’s Compass quilt completed earlier this season.  The center is a compass star with flying geese surrounding the sashing.

Oh, did I mention that I am insane?  This is paper pieced.  The center compass is about 3 inches square!  Total size is 8-1/2 x 8-1/2.  A true miniature.Miniature2

I quilted it with stitch in in the ditch around all those baby geese and the sashing, and the star.  Then I added tiny feathers to the outer border.

Not an easy task on something so small, but I am very pleased with the result.  I hope you like it too, and will vote for it in the show.

Come over to Amy’s Creative and vote next week.  Click on the icon to go to the Mini category, so you can see my entry.  Voting begins May 23 to all.  If you like my miniature quilt, I would appreciate your vote!

Here is where the pattern was found.  It is on the cover, and I modified the border and changed the colors.

This was fun, and I just might do another one!
