Mariner’s Compass Quilt

quilt-archives-005Project: Wallhanging
Size: Approx. 30 X 30
Reference/Pattern: Mariner’s Compass Quilts by Judy Mathieson/mariner’s compass
Designed by: “Costa Rica Cartwheel” by Judy Mathieson
Constructed by: Barbara Wolff, Waukee, IA
Quilted by: Barbara Wolff
Completed : March 1997
Techniques Used: Procion dyed fabric by Barbara Wolff, freezer paper piecing, machine pieced and quilted.

Notes: This was an ambitious project. The freezer paper-piecing method is not like foundation paper-piecing method. You don’t sew through the paper; it’s there to help with precision. I don’t know for sure where I went wrong, but the thing does not lay flat; it bulges in the middle. Someday I’d like to try this again.

Thanks for being here.
