New Quilt Ideas

I have been following 16 year old Mike Perham's World Challenge. I thought I would design and make a quilt in recognition of Mike's journey around the world.

I have used the |Mariner's compass as the centre of this medallion quilt. The curved log cabin represent the sails of Mike's boat. The above design is my second attempt and at the moment this is the one I think I will make.

This was my first attempt and although the colours are similar the design is different. I added roses in the corners of this one.

The colours in both quilts represent the sea, sky, sun and colours from Mike's boat. I am really inspired by Mike's challenge. You can visit his website HERE and follow his blog as he circumnavigates the world.

It's a great project, the second one is more difficult but very very original.

Great designs. I think I prefer the first one too.
Thanks for the link to Mike's website.
