|"To be considered a "Compass" pattern, a Mariner's Compass star should contain 16 to 32 points.|
Sherry Reynolds made this Mariner's quilt called America, Let it Shine. It is a tribute to America's foundations and values. It includes part of the Gettysburg Address, Preamble to the Constitution, and the Declaration of Independence. It is an original design as you will see Sherry holding up the blue print pattern that she created to make her quilt. I cannot even imagine starting a quilt of this magnitude! Little Barb liked all the sparkly dots on the quilt. Sherry said the number of sparklies was equal to the number of words in our Constitution (If I remember that correctly).
