So far so good, here's a partial block with a couple of sections that shows how I'm going to fit the puzzle together. The green, yellow and background have freezer paper on the back to stabilise and help me pin and piece accurately. I've already done the center which will finish at 8" and that is foundation pieced on stitch 'n tear with the center appliqued on. It's a looong process.Have you seen the rainbow quiz doing the rounds on blogs at the moment? Well I did it cause I'm a sucker! Click here if you want to do it. I will say that it says I am patient and I will keep trying to understand something until I've mastered it. Hey I knew that, just look at the compass!

Remember this from a couple of posts back? I did say I would have to redraft the large compass because it wasn't accurate enough and no I don't have EQ 6. I prefer to try and draw it. After a lot of frustration and quite a while later, I discovered that my protractor was not accurate. Yup, I blame the tools. I had a print out of a circle with angles which helped me to proceed. The next step is to try out the piecing to see if it works and will sit flat. I'm foundation piecing these divided diamonds in strips, I know, I know, now you're probably thinking I'm a bit mad to bother! The large compass will be about 21 1/2"
