Nautical Nights

Inspired by Sajata Shah’s Organized Chaos I created Nautical Nights.  I loved how she had extended the points on the kaleidoscopes to create a sort of mariner’s compass.  I added a sort of wonky friendship star as a alternate block.  I had some issues with fabric placement to make the round around the mariner’s compass.  In fact I was quilting it when I found one was not right.  Rather than unpick almost everything, I appliqued the correct wedge over the wrong one.  No one will ever know, right? 

 I choose fabrics from Moda lines; Collections for a Cause, Castlewood, and Paisley Park.  I know these are not my usual colors but thought they went well with my theme.

 Adding a pieced border to frame the whole thing.  I do love a pieced border.

Linking up with Sarah to whoop whoop.
