Mariner's compass pillow
With Christy Blume

Traditionally you had 2 choices to make a Mariner’s Compass block: foundation paper piecing or complicated piecing using templates. Not any more! Robin Ruth has designed a revolutionary strip-piecing method enabling you to make the once tedious and unapproachable mariner’s compass block quickly and accurately. The book with ruler system makes simple work of these beautiful blocks.

Join Christy for the 45-degree Skinny Robin class, and cut your compass into 16 narrower bite size pieces yielding a more detailed result. This class will also feature a dive into the many variable design options available using the Robin Ruth Mariner’s Compass systems.
