Christine Dionne-Taylor of Ontario has sent along a picture of her completed Encompassing quilt. Christine's husband Ron works as a captain on one of the huge 'lakers' which ply the Great Lakes. Christine's quilt is a bit larger than the one I originally designed, as she wanted it to fit his bed on board ship. The block is a variation of a Mariner's Compass and as such, was a perfect choice for her sailor husband. I'm guessing it would be pretty safe to say that the compasses used in days of yore have given way to computerized navigational aids.
If you'd like to make your own version, the pattern for Encompassing is available by clicking here.
Thanks Christine for sharing this picture - the next best thing to seeing the quilt in person! More of Christine's lovely work may be seen here, in her webshots album.
