  • Island Quilter 17639 Vashon Highway Southwest Vashon, WA, 98070 United States (map)

Have you ever wanted to make a mariner’s compass block but were too intimidated?  Not a fan of paper piecing or using tedious templates?  Introducing Robin Ruth Design’s brand new MARINER’S COMPASS RULERS and STRIP PIECING METHOD  for making 16 point compass blocks in 16 different sizes (even sizes from 6”-36”).  Pick from two sister rulers, Fat Robin or Skinny Robin, each using the exact same method but with different results.  Fat Robin is based on a 60˚ angle and gives you ‘fat’ points and Skinny Robin is based on a 45˚ angle resulting in ‘skinny’ points.  You will learn block construction, finishing techniques, and get many ideas for your own modern or traditional compass project!  Students must also purchase either the Fat Robin or Skinny Robin book and ruler set which also includes a pattern sheet with all the templates you will need to finish every size block and center for $39.95.
