i ordered a couple of patterns from paper panache,  thanks for enabling, kris.   it seems the paper pieced christmas themed quilt is off and running.   i ordered the horse and sleigh, and have probably bitten off more than i can chew.   i may just send it to kris and have her do it for me.  :  )

Thanks gini for the information.

I love the idea for the Christmas quilt.   I might have to join you later.   I think you can handle anything.  Your work is so beautiful.

I've posted links in "Pages". The ornaments, Christmas stockings etc. I've also posted links that have been shared.

LOL Gini. It might be a problem if you wanted it in this decade. LOL.

I hunted around this morning for a Mariner's Compass for my brother's Christmas present.   Which year who knows?  I've always wanted to make him one because he was in the Navy for 30 years so it just seemed appropriate.   Has anyone done one before and if so do you have any tips.  I found a pattern this morning http://www.bearpawproductions.com/userfiles/file/Compass_Quilterstv.pdf .  Now I just have to work up the courage.

Not a bad pattern Robin. You can always modify the block if you're not comfortable with curved piecing or the tiny triangles around the compass. The pattern is colour coded; I like that.

I think you'll be fine with this. It would make a very nice centre in a medallion quilt.

Kris,

Thanks for the advice and support.   I may be calling on you in a couple of months for those words of wisdom.

robin, thanks for the link.   i'm downloading it now.    in for a penny, in for a pound, this might make a nice group block.  as mariners compasses go, it is an easier one.  only 8 points come together

Good idea Gini. I'd be up for making this one.

Mariners Compass? I Would love to learn it. But first I need to understand paper piecing.  I've read instructions and am still thoroughly confused. 

Maybe i'll do better when I get a chance to follow the paper piecing class on Crafsy.

Judy,

What is it that you're not understanding? Let's work through it together.

Thanks Kris. Later this week I'm hoping to have some time to go through the Craftsy course I bought and see if it helps me understand the paper piecing process. Right now I'm not even sure what to ask, the instructions just kind of leave me thinking "Hun?". Dumb me, you'd think being a bookkeeper/numbers person it would make sense. Perhaps I just need things lined up in a nice orderly row? I'm sure once I finally "get" it, I'll think "Oh good grief, how could I have been so DENSE". (lol)

So, you'll be hearing back from me with either an "AH HA" or a call for help.
