The Process Pledge: sweat and tears, mainly tears

For the last two terms I have been working on Ferret's sampler quilt featured on the cover of her Ferreting Around book. Ferret is an absolutely wonderful teacher and I adore her to bits and I am sure I have tried her patience many a times with my silly questions especially when it came to the Mariner's Compass parts of the sampler....OMG....I have been practically tearing my hair out over these, but tadahhhhhh, finally 1& 2 are ready, only 2 more to go!!! and I seem to understand foundation piecing a bit more than I did in the beginning..

and out of curiocity I just twisted the two around and my my my..

ain't that pretty?!!!! well, it would be pretty if it got stitched together properly!

I have promised myself that I will not put my best quilts up without their binding completed but I could not resist this teeny little preview shot of my latest Kaffe Fassett quilted by Ferret

thank you Ferret!

I now have 4 quilts waiting for their binding and 4 waiting to be basted and quilted!!!!



  1. That compass is fab!! Well done. At least when it comes to binding you can take it out to a shady part of the garden and do it outside. WHEN the sun comes out that is!

  2. Hi Amo, I am a long way from binding just yet! trusts me, by the time this quilt is finished, it will be even more shady than it is at present!!!
