  • 28 full-size compass patterns
  • 4 compass halos
  • 4 small compass patterns
  • 7 spectacular projects

Most of the quilts in this book are made using triangle foundation grids from the Triangulations ™2.0 disc. This software must be purchased separately. Alternate cutting instructions have been provided for quilters who choose traditional triangle construction methods.

Author Brenda HenningAbout the Author

Brenda Henning has become known for her graphic pieced quilts as well as her colorful stained glass designs. Her clear and concise instructions make even the most challenging designs "do-able" for the average quilter.

Brenda is a highly interactive instructor that travels throughout the country teaching for various guilds and conferences.

Brenda lives in Anchorage, Alaska, with her husband, Richard, and their three children, Beth, Christi and Joshua. Two Rottweilers, Jake and Kaia share copious quantities of black dog hair with every quilt that leaves the premises.
