New 2-Day Class at Quilted Strait

  • Quilted Strait

Can't wait to teach this new 2-day Compass Medallion Class!

"2- Day Class - Learn how to make this stunning medallion compass combo in a two-day class with Robin Long of Robin Ruth Design. The first day students will learn the basics for making either a Skinny Robin or Fat Robin 16-Point compass (12" block featured in the center of the medallion) and then the second day learn how to make the large 32-Point Compass variation (larger  26" outer compass).  Students will need to purchase either the Skinny Robin 45˚ or Fat Robin 60˚ Mariner's Compass Book and Ruler combo for the first day of class, and then Robin will have 32-Point rulers available in class for students on the second day to try out for making their 32-point compass variation.  Finish this medallion into a small wall hanging or incorporate it into a larger medallion quilt.  Once you learn this method and how to use Robin's rulers, the creative possibilities are endless!"
