Strip Pieced Mariner’s Compass Basics Workshop - WQG MEMBERS ONLY


DATE: May 18, 2022

TIME: 9am - 3:30pm

COST: $55 for guild members plus a $3 convenience fee


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!

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.

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 this revolutionary new strip-piecing method for making mariner’s compass blocks!

Students will receive a supply list prior to class with a small bit of homework, as well as a short Pre-Class Video to cover the basics of my method so that we all start class on the same page.

Students will all need to have their own Skinny Robin OR Fat Robin 16-Point Mariner’s Compass Book and Ruler Combo.

I will bring my rulers (plus a selection of my entire product offering) and have them available at class with a 10% discount – students do not need to buy the book/ruler combos prior to class as everything they need to get ready for class will be provided on the Supply List and in the Pre-Class Video. Many students may already have their book and ruler combos and do not need to buy another. If students wish to purchase ahead of class, I would encourage them to either purchase from their favorite local/online quilt shop or directly off my website. Please do not purchase my book and ruler combos off of Amazon. Even though it may say Robin Ruth Design, these are third-party sellers and I can’t guarantee what you will receive.


If you cancel your workshop registration 31 or more days prior to the event, you are entitled to a refund of the workshop fees, but not the convenience fee. To cancel, contact the First Vice President (info in your directory) or fill out the contact form on this website. If you cancel within 30 days of the workshop, you will not receive a refund as we may have already been required to confirm a minimum number of attendees. You may however, designate someone else to attend in your place. If you plan to do this, again, please let the First Vice President know.
