I am hoping to make my eldest son a Mariners Compass quilt for his birthday present in November. As this is a technique I have not used before I am started some "training" on new techniques. During my last visit to Handcrafters House in Midland I found a good book by Judy Mathieson called Mariners Compass Quilts. So this afternoon was spent working on Pattern 1 - 8-Point Rising Star. The fabric is from my offcuts box.
The blanket stitch around the centre circle could be better but generally I am quite pleased with my first effort.
