Sparrow's Compass Quilt Top

I rewrote one of my patterns this week and decided to make a test sample in an older Island Batik fabric collection, Tropicana Twist.  You might remember my Log Cabin Under the Stars quilt, which I also made with this fabric line.  It's so bright and sunny.

Caramel helped hold down my paper piecing.  She was feeling a little camera shy.

Sparrow's Compass is a Mariner's Compass design.  I paper pieced it in sections, sewed the sections together, and then needle turn appliqued it to a green background square.

Aren't these fabrics bright and beautiful?

I finished it off by adding a bright orange border, then a sunny yellow one.

Here's a neat pic I took of the paper pieced sections before adding the center circle.  It looks like a big sunshine to me.  Now it's sitting on my to be quilted pile.  I could be a while before I get back to it.  I have a few deadline projects to finish up first.

Have you been following the Island Batik Modern Quilt blog hop?  My day on the hop is tomorrow, Monday, May 10th.  I can't wait to show you the quilt I designed using the new Holly Holiday fabric collection.  I'll be having a giveaway, too.  See you then!
