Compass cover

I commissioned my wife the quilter to make a compass cover. The design is called a Mariners compass.

I just put a spare baseball cap over the compass. Not as elegant but utilitarian.

That's what I used. Pam made quilted cushions for the watch berth with the mariners compass design. I liked them, so commissioned a compass cover with the same design. It replaces the baseball cap.
