    No. The black and cream solids are only for the roads and a few places in the skyscrapers. Add your own black white if you want it in the compass.

    Is there enough black fabric and cream fabric in the kit to use for the mariner's compass? I am a little late getting started but loving the journey of the Color My World !

    see if a little “assertive pressing “ will find the 1/4”. If not, you will be able to ease the Inner Road to fit.

    Marcia P, I think it was 14 1/2" and that includes the seam allowance. HelenW

    Take a look at the front page of the directions.

    do I place the template on top and stitch through it?
    Are you trying to sew the sections with the paper still on? After trimming the sections to the proper size, remove the paper and sew the sections as you would any two pieces of fabric.

    Greetings, I am experiencing great challenge sewing each compass section together to achieve correct aligned points. What are the tips to have the points achieve alignment? Thanks

    I reduce the foot pressure when sewing bulky seams.
    The Bernina pressure is 70 by default and I reduce it to 50 or even 40.
