Robin Ruth Long Workshop - "Mariner's Compass Basics"

Mariner's CompassIt all started when Robin Ruth tried to make a Mariner’s Compass quilt for her submarine officer husband. In January 2015, Robin took an idea she had been thinking about and launched Robin Ruth Design. She has developed a new line of revolutionary rulers, books, patterns and a technique for making STRIP-PIECED mariner’s compass blocks in 16 sizes — that’s right, NO PAPER PIECING!

Mariner’s Compass Basics is a technique class where students will make a basic compass block and learn to finish it by attaching it to a background. Robin will share tips using this revolutionary new strip piecing way for making Mariner’s Compass blocks. She has numerous ideas for turning these blocks into amazing quilts like the one shown to the right.
