This pattern dates back before 1726 and is derived from the Wind Rose Compass which mariners relied on during their journeys. The compass always depicts a return for me. We give our children wings and roots. Through all our travels the return to family and our roots should always remain strong, much like the magnetic pull of the compass. May your compass always guide you home.
