One Compass Quilt down, a few more to go ...

Here it is ... the first of the Mariner's Compass quilts that I had given a peek of in the previous post. This one is entitled "C-Cubed, Caribbean Colored Compasses".
It's 42 x 48". All the compasses are made using various coloured batiks on a cream tone-on-tone background. The dark green mottled background really makes the bright colours pop out.
Now I'm working on the other wallhanging, which has one main compass in the centre and a bit of applique around it. This compass itself is huge, about 32" all by itself. It's done in purple, green, blue, pink, a little bit of yellow. I'll probably put it on the background today. Then there'll be 4 matching table runners, 2 to match each wallhanging.
