"As Seen In" Quilt Mag. April/May 2011 ~ Mariner's Watch

We saw this quilt at International Quilt Market last October. At that time, they weren't sure if there would be a pattern available for sale. Fortunately, they went one better and published the pattern in Quilt Magazine April/May 2011!
Here is our photo from market:


Mariner's Watch is on pg 44 - 47



Have you always admired the Mariner's Compass but were afraid to try it? Well, if so, here's an easier way to make all those tiny points meets with a paper-pieced medallion. Strategic use of Marcus Fabrics' "Strip It" fabric allows you to get the look of additional piecing in this medallion quilt without the additional work! The central compass is paper pieced, while the remainder of the quilt features traditional piecing. Fabrics are from Marcus Fabrics' Metropolis collection designed by Faye Burgos.



Quilt Dimensions: 67 1/2" x 67 1/2"
