To celebrate this fun and awesome happening, I’ve done a couple of things…

Floating Mariner

First, I’ve created new layouts and color schemes to inspire you, as well as updating the Floating Mariner pattern.

Not into blue & lavender? Try a different color!

Floating Mariner Table Runner

The Floating Mariner table runner is made with four Floating Mariner blocks plus 4 extra 3″ units used as corner stones.

Try mixing Floating Mariner with a traditional block and see what happens!

Floating Mariner Quilt Layout 3

This one makes me think of fireworks! Red, White & Blue Floating Mariner made with 16 blocks plus 4 3″ units as cornerstones.

Floating Mariner Quilt Layout 2

I think this is my favorite of all the layouts I played with. Alternate Floating Mariner colorings combined.

Floating Mariner Quilt Layout 5

This one is totally different, putting Floating Mariner on point and leaving out the small corner pieces. Fun!

These layouts were created using Electric Quilt 7.  

Floating Mariner is my original design.

An Old Favorite

Floating Mariner 4 x 4

I was recently delighted when the gals over at Quilt Inspiration asked permission to post Floating Mariner on their site as part of their Winter Stars series.

I might have squeed a little. 😉

That post went up today, and I was thrilled to see my work there as well as touched by their kind words.

Floating Mariner

The Floating Mariner, by Jennifer Ofenstein (hey, that’s me!)

It’s always fun for a quilt designer to play with a traditional block. I really enjoy stars and Mariner’s Compass is an all-time favorite for it’s striking geometric design.

A number of students in a class I taught earlier this year urged me to add a Mariner’s Compass to my class rotation. I loved the idea and decided that if I was going to include a Mariner’s Compass, I had to go all the way and create my own version to share with my students!

When I started drafting my pattern, I was unsure what direction I wanted to take with such a traditional block. After some trial and error, the Floating Mariner emerged.  I love how the smaller stars echo the center motif.  Taken singly, the block is a stunning 16″ wall-hanging.  Combined with more Floating Mariners, a stunning quilt layout emerges.

Use it as a single block for a wall hanging, or make multiple blocks for a breathtaking quilt!
