Le Challenge - June- Maritime

There has been a bit of drama surrounding me trying to get this post added but I shall save that for another day.
So here is my offering for the June Le Challenge on the theme of Maritime.
I have not had the chance to do much patchwork or quilting for some time so I thought that this would be a good chance to do some.
 
I have always wanted to have a go at the Mariners Compass but always been a bit put off by how complicated it looks.
I found the above in a magazine I have and decided to have a go at making a mug rug or table centre piece.  It is perhaps a bit big for a mug rug!
 I had a little bit of a struggle stitching it together and the circular edge enticed me to use language not allowed here! 
I like blue, hence my Blog name, and I got a chance to use up some small pieces of fabric left over from making a quilt a few years ago.
 
I did not realise how much I missed patchwork and quilting until I made this.
I wonder what the next theme will be/
Have a good weekend.

Very cute as a mug rug! I had to do a mariner's compass for the challenge too. It was daunting but it is done so now i can do something easier. :)

Your quilting is beautiful, and a big mug rug means there's room for cake as well !!

I like the look of Mariners Compass, but I think it looks really complicated too! I like your smaller version :) I'm looking forward to seeing what the next theme is as well!

I love mariner's compass blocks too! Thanks for linking up and I think it was worth all that hard work and sailor language ;)

Your quilting and patchwork has been worth while . The mariners compass looks lovely. I haven't dipped my toe into quilting I always think it looks complicated. I'm very impressed with the circular design. Have a lovely weekend.

That is really, great design and colours.
The daisies are out in our garden, I thought they had reduced in number - but I was wrong! Glad yours continue to thrive.
