By Hand

Not much progress, but the blue block is finished, and I finished the stitching in the white on the final block, which is purple. Once the purple block is finished, I can try to figure out how to make the center compass block big enough to fill the hole between all the Hawaiian blocks.

last week's progress

this week's progress

I've long wanted to work up a bunch of flying geese to border the compass; we'll see if I have the guts to try to do it circular. I'll probably just end up doing a square border! (It's easier to put together in photoshop... ha ha ha!)

Linking up with Alycia Quilts and Confessions of a Fabric Addict.


  1. Wow! Your blocks are amazing with the beautiful applique and stitching. And I really love how you have the pastel rainbow around the mariner's compass.

  2. ohthat is sooooo pretty!! and i like the center - with all the colors together!

  3. Love these colors. This one is going to be a real stunner when it's finished.
