This pattern is a wonderful example of a beginner pattern building off the Outside Compass unit in the Mariner’s Compass Pattern. The cutting instructions are simple, the foundation paper-piecing is fast as the pieces in this pattern are large pieces, which come together to complete an 8 pointed compass star. With a second layer of points behind the main unit, the center medallion makes a clean, vibrant impression, offset by a contrasting background and a simple curved strip-pieced border unit! We highly recommend this pattern for both beginners and instructional workshops. It does not include any difficult assembly piecing, aside from the curves in the border.
