New quilt project

No interest as of tonight on a free expanded version for the Love of  geese quilt to make it a full size quilt. So…I’ve started drafting a pattern for my next quilt. It will be based on https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Jorge_Aguiar_1492_MR.jpg the wind compass found on this page. The compass draft is complete. Now to find other ideas to go with it.
Of course my flying geese border is also completed but that would leave a lot of blank space. Perhaps nautical quilting? Unsure. The last hours I’ve worked with nautical knots trying to decide how I can incorporate them into the quilt. I’ve searched for fabric with a nautical map theme but no luck yet.

Please help me get my quilt and blog out there by sharing the quilts on social media or pin it. Blogging is new to me so I am illiterate right now on how to get word out other than facebook and tagging. Any suggestions?

Update. Beinecke Rare Book and Manuscript Library, Yale University returned my email inquiry. The image I will be using in my quilt is public domain. There is no copyright on the image. Awaiting from them a high resolution image so I can complete the compass.
