I took a Mariner's Compass Star class from Carol Doak at the Hershey Quilt Odyssey in July 2007. Some ladies on the online quilting group I belong to have recently taken the class and have been posting pictures of their projects. That just motivated me to dig mine back out and put it on the list to sandwich and quilt. Sure would be nice to get last year's project done before I'm off to the Quilt Odyssey this year. This quilt is called Fire and Ice but mine is more like Sun and Sea. The center star is actually the Iceland star, block no. 12 from the Mariner's Compass Star book. My husband picked out the colors and some of the fabric, so this is another one for him.
