    Looking for Mariner's Compass Pattern

    I've been searching for a mariner's compass pattern. I haven't had much luck. Could anyone steer me in the right direction please? I'm looking for a book or just the pattern. Thank you!

    Here is a free paper pieced pattern. Maybe it will help.

    Here are three books from my own collection I can recommend:
    1. Nautical Voyages for Quilters - Betty Boyink
    2. Mariner's Compass: An American Quilt Classic - Judy Mathieson
    3. Mariner's Compass Quilts: Setting a New course - Judy Mathieson

    Strongly suggest the Judy Mathieson books well worth the investment.
    Quilt outside of the box!

    I recently bought a book called Showstopping Quilts to Foundation Piece by Tricia Lund and Judy Pollard. I bought it as an e-book directly from Martingale publishing. I was amazed to find it, but it has the same Mariner's Compass pattern that one of our members recently posted as her first (!) paper pieced quilt.
    my first pp

    I liked the e-book idea...fast and a little cheaper...but mostly because I can print out the patterns directly from the book. Here's a link to book itself. There are other great patterns also.
