 This is Encompassing:

Nautical patterns, especially compasses, hold a special place in my heart.  Far from being difficult to sew,  "Encompassing" has simplified lines of all straight seams, sewn using foundation piecing (no curves). 

Careful colour placement creates a secondary design of stars encircling the compasses. 

The quilt is photographed on the steps of the lighthouse in Five Islands, N.S. 

The pattern for Encompassing has been re-formatted as a pdf download and is available here.
