I had this gorgeous orange batik (it's in the biggest spikes below) that I loved and wanted to showcase in a quilt.  I'd been wanting to make a mariners compass, but didn't want to use the traditional setting so I designed the center of the quilt.  Then, I played in Electric Quilter until I came up with a border design that I liked to go with it (all the spikes).  I've been working on this quilt for almost four years and I remember doing this while my younger son was napping!

Some lovely texture as I quilted.

I love feathers.  I just can't get enough of them.

The gorgeous Mariner's compass center.  I love the way it sparkles.  The blue quilting thread looks simply electric!

The full quilt. I designed the borders knowing I wanted to do a curvy binding.  I'm very happy with the way it turned out!
