Strip Pieced Mariner's Compass at Quilted Strait

  • Quilted Strait 32280 Puget Way NE Port Gamble, WA. 98364 USA (map)

Say the words "Mariner's Compass" to a quilter and you will sometimes invoke an involuntary shudder - either the quilter is not a paper piecing fan or the quilter does not like working with templates. All that is in the past now due to Robin Long's innovative strip piecing method and rulers which will enable you to make mariner's compass blocks in 16 sizes (even sizes from 6"-36"). In this class you will learn to use the Skinny and Fat Robin rulers to make a 12" Mariner's Compass and finish it into a 14" block. The class will also explore creating a Quarter Compass and Half Compass Blocks. Once you have mastered the technique, what can you do with this amazing block is up to your imagination. Robin Long, owner of Robin Ruth Designs, and designer for these terrific rulers will also bring a variety of quilts to show you for inspiration. Students should have rotary cutting experience and have completed at least one quilt.
