Lucille's Mariner's Compass Quilt (Edited)

Hello Quilty Friends!

Today I will be sharing my friend, Lucille Amos' quilts. She is a CI with Judy Neimeyer/  She made these quilts for her samples. Lucille made the wall size quilt and the Queen attachment for the pattern. I have combined them in this blog post, as she had used alot of the same fabrics.
This is Mariner's Compass. I love this quilt.  I really had fun quilting these quilt. Quilting Lucille's quilts are always fun because she is one of those who trusts me as her LAQ and just hands over the quilt. On the larger quilt, I used wool batting. It quilts beautifully, I have only worked with wool batts a few times.
Note: Just after my original post I found the pics of the larger quilt so that is what has been edited on this blog post. Thanks

This photo is a closeup of the corner.

 And another corner view.  I did not take alot of photos of this quilt when I finished it. (I will get better about taking more photos)

The next few photos are from Lucille's other larger quilt.

Of course, a few pics of the back

The lighting in my quilt room and time of day made this fabric look different.

This last photo is the day I met Lucille to deliver her big quilt.

I did quilt both of these alot alike being she used the same fabrics. So, if after she teaches the classes and wanted to use them in a room together, they would look nice together.
I took Lucille Amos' class of this pattern. It is a technique of the month type class. I have not finished mine yet. It is on my "to do" list. I can tell you from personal experience (I used to hate to Paper Piecing)...if you have ever wanted to try paper piecing....find a Quilt Shop that has the classes taught by a Certified Instructor for Quiltwork/Judy Neimeyer.  They are trained to help you understand the concept, and show you how to make the pattern . The patterns also include cutting instructions, which is what I really like. You know the fabric will cover the area, no trial and error. 
I am in no way affiliated with Quiltworx/Judy Neimeyer...I just love the patterns and have had wonderful experience with the ones I have made and in the process of making. 

I am happy with how Lucille's quilts turned out and had fun quilting them both....and that my "quilty friends" is what it is all about!
Happy Quilting!
