I've not done a lot of sewing lately. I did have a bit of a play with foundation piecing though.
I'd had this Mariners Compass pattern sitting in my drawer for years. I can't even remember where it came from originally so can't acknowledge the designer of it. I think I might have traced it out of a magazine... maybe. I never did anything with it as the pointy points and curved flying geese looked really scary but I loved it and finally plucked up the courage to have a go. It's pieced onto Bounce tumble drier sheets and came together surprisingly well. It even lies flat.
I've got a big stack of 6" string blocks and I think it would work really well as the centre piece of a string block and white irish chain. When my cutting table is free again I'll have a go and see if it works.
