The Mariners Compass block has long been part of the quilting tradition, in most cases pieced by hand or with a paper piecing technique.  Robin Long of Robin Ruth designs has developed an amazing ruler and strip piecing technique to make this block in a fraction of the time it takes using the traditional method. The possibilities are endless and your skill level will be elevated beyond your expectations!

In this full-day class, you'll learn to make one of the many possible Mariners Compass styles that the ruler and book allow you to create. We'll make an 18" x 18" pillow cover with the completed block.  Students will have a 30 to 45 minute lunch break.
