A few posts/months ago I posted a sketch of a quilt idea for my 36" Mariner's Compass quilt block. Since the block is so large, the quilt is huge, well, not exactly. It is about a queen size (about 70" x 100") but big for a wall hanging. I'm laid it out on a ping pong table because my design wall is too small. Some of the colors are changed, and I managed to get my computer to put "tulle" over the bottom half of the circle~
So far: the horizon of the sea is sewn to a thin line of very pale gold. I've two colors of tulle, navy and a dove gray. Right now, the navy looks the best, but it will be near the last to go on. Don't know if I should cover all the water with it or not, but the price is low so I bought 3 meters of each color. I have lots of fabrics to work into this piece. Several watery looking ones for the water and lots of variety for the sky. I'm just wondering if I will still be sane when it is finished. Or am I even sane to start it?! One positive. The table is in our walkout and my sewing machine is on the second floor. I will let you know how many pounds I lose running up and down the stairs.
Also, this is post #199. Next one will give details for a draw, just to celebrate #200.
