Lost at "C"

This is a Mariner's Compass, a traditional quilt block. It's one of two I am making to decorate a saddlepad for dressage. That's where 'Lost at C' comes in. This one came out OK, the other one looks like Mt. Shasta on LSD. If it were a compass to be used for finding your way, you would be lost. Not only at C, but also at E and, most likely, K. So I had to make another one, right?

Sort of. My third one came out better than my second, but also proved to me how lucky I was with the first. I might be able to fix it. Might.

In the end, I monkey around a lot, but come out a more experienced foundation piecer. Just what I always wanted.
