It seems that March 17th, in addition to being St Patrick's Day is also National Quilting Day in the USA. The National Quilting Association has released a free pattern to mark the occasion this year ... Pointing the Way, an Ohio star with a simple Mariner’s Compass center designed by Martha Ethridge.
The pattern makes a 56" square quilt.
Previous years' patterns are also still available to download,
Hope you've had a good day's quilting.
