July Meetings are virtual!
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 Robin’s 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 get to choose which kind of compass they will make - Skinny Robin (pictured below top) or Fat Robin (pictured below bottom). We will make an OctaCompass block and then finish the center and into a project ready square.
