Mariner's Compass

A few months ago, I tried paper piecing for the first time. It was fun...kinda.
Just not the sort of quilting that I am used to, you know, with rules and seams that have to match up and all.

It was a good introduction though and I learned a lot. Mostly I learned that I'm not very good at it, but it didn't defeat me. Oh no it didn't.

Instead, I just added a skulls and crossbones patterned piece of fleece as the backing and can't wait to lay this baby down to play on it.

I'll definitely try it again, maybe another go 'round with a Mariner's Compass pattern. But the next few attempts at piecing I think I'll resort to my make-it-work-and-use-what-you've-got style.
