I realized I had used a giant 20" coffee filter to draft a compass several years ago and I dug it out. No! I'm not smoking anything! Here it is:
|20" diameter coffee filter|
|20" Coffee Filters, folded in half. Just convenient circles, that's all.|
I cut the coffee filter apart and paper pieced 8 units. Well, what do they look like?
|Two units together. Yes, the coffee filter is still on there so you can see it.|
|Two of the 8 units, from the front|
|Adding this Geese Ring takes the Compass to a 28" diameter. Yikes!|
|I printed out the two ring sections and had to draw my own background piece|
|We are talking BIG PIECES here! Even my wide format printer wouldn't print this.|
|32" Mariner's Compass, pieced on a coffee filter!|
|6 fat quarters of the Gabrielle Collection|
Of course, any circle will do if you do not have a circular coffee filter.
