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? You’ll love this class for learning how to make 16-point compass blocks in 16 different sizes using Robin Ruth Design’s rulers and strip-piecing method! Join Robin and learn all the compass basics for making either a Skinny Robin or Fat Robin mariner’s compass block. Once you learn how to use my rulers and strip-piecing technique, you will be free to move on to one of the many patterns and projects made using this ruler system!
Students should have completed a couple of previous quilt projects. Good rotary cutting skills and accurate sewing are a plus for this class.)
Students get to choose which kind of compass they will make - Skinny Robin or Fat Robin.
We will make an 18? OctaCompass block and then finish the center and into an 181/2? square.
This is a technique class and an introduction to my strip-piecing method. You will learn different techniques for finishing.
Written class requirements as well as class prep information, will be mailed immediately upon signing up for class.
