My wind rose is almost complete, 2 borders and a sashing is all that remains. I’m really glad I stayed true to the original and added a white border to the points. The rest of the blocks for the quilt are done I just have to sew them all together and add them to the quilt. The outside border blocks, well I am up in the air about them. They are pieced and sewn in halves, I just cant decide if I want full blocks or half blocks. I’m really glad I decided to trim the compass with the curved flying geese, I love the way it frames the compass.
When I began drawing this I started thinking about different ways to quilt it. In the beginning I thought I would quilt straight lines to resemble a Portolan Chart. Now I am not so sure.
