Stripped Pieced Mariner's Compass- Robin Ruth Designs



Supplies:
Skinny Robin 16-Point Mariner’s Compass
Book & Ruler Combo

or

Fat Robin 16-Point Mariner’s Compass
Book & Ruler Combo

Students get to choose which kind of compass they will make - Skinny Robin or Fat Robin
. We will make a 12” OctaCompass block and then finish the center and into a 121/2” square.
This is a technique class and an introduction to my strip-piecing method. You will learn different techniques for finishing the centers of your compass block and for making all 16 sizes of Compass blocks. I will share tons of tips for learning this revolutionary new strip-piecing method for making mariner’s compass blocks!

Checklist

1. Regular sewing supplies (sewing machine, cutting mat and rotary cutter, thread, scissors)
2. Straight edge ruler with 45˚ angle for Skinny Robin and 60˚ angle for Fat Robin. Most straight edge rulers come with these angles located on the ends of the ruler. These rulers will work, but it will be a little easier if you have a ruler with the angles in the middle. Try my new Angle Ruler or Olfa makes one that you might already have. Rulers with the angles on the end will still work, but sometimes are a little more difficult to use - can be unweldly.

3. Pins
4. Freezer paper squares - 121/2”, and 4” (for Skinny) or 6” (for Fat)
5. 121/2” Square-Up Ruler if you already own one - optional
