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!

What started as a quest to make a Mariner’s Compass quilt for her submarine officer husband, Robin Long took an idea she had in 1992 and launched Robin Ruth Design in 2015. She has developed a line of revolutionary rulers, books, patterns, and technique for making STRIP PIECED mariner’s compass blocks and projects – that’s right, NO PAPER PIECING!
