Getting started!

I'm jumping in! I've beem encouraged to start blogging my many of my friends so here we go. I have had a ball working on my Mariners compasses lately. They sell quickly and are fun to make. I usually make a 31" pattern that is based on an older Judy Mathersion pattern which I have modified to my use.  I also draft many original patterns. I find it enjoyable to make blocks that are uniquely mine start to finish. 

This one was blue teal and corals.  I really like that color combination and will most likely do another similar one. I rarely make exactly the same one unless asked to. This one was all printed fabric.

These next few are a combination of Island Batiks and Kona Cotton. The Batiks are all different color ways of a fern pattern. The Kona Cottons are complimentary runs of blues, greens and purples.

These are a few 100% batik Compasses.

Thank you for stopping by, check back for new post! I can be found on Instagram as Rexeroll and eBay as rexeroll2013. 


  1. Welcome to blogging! Thank you for sharing your beautiful blocks.

  2. So wonderful to see so many of your amazing creations in one place. Can't wait to see what you'll write next!

    1. Thank you Joyce, I'm not completely sure where this will take me. It should be interesting, we will all go together!

  3. It's so exciting to see you blog up and running! I love these blocks. They are so pleasing and an inspiration. I look forward to your next post!

  4. Thanks for you comment on my blog. I'm glad to hear others sort certain groups separately too. I'm surprised that I am able to comment on a Google+ blog because since I am just plain Google blogger I'm not usually allowed. Unfortunately Google+ bloggers are NO REPLY on plain Blogger so I couldn't reply directly to you.
