Modern Mariner’s Compass – Strip Pieced!


Robin will give a detailed overview of the modern technique and projects using Robin Ruth Design’s system of rulers, books, and patterns for STRIP PIECED mariner’s compass blocks and variations. Robin will share how she is bringing the mariner’s compass block into the 21st century with her modern technique and projects for how you can create your own modern mariner’s compass project.

WORKSHOP:

Strip Pieced Mariner’s Compass Basics Workshop 


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!


This workshop will be held at Covenant Lutheran Church,  4202 Hickory Road in Temple.

PROGRAM:

Ginny Eckley – Fabric Painting


My passion for art is fueled by my love of nature. Through my art, I challenge myself
to learn new things, both artistic and academic. After researching the endangered
birds of Hawaii, I focused on birds of New Guinea. There, the Bird of Paradise species
are thriving, as efforts are made to protect them.


I enjoy sharing my skills and techniques through teaching. I teach both in my studio,
and venues, such as the International Quilt Festival. I have been fortunate to have
taught in several cities throughout Japan.
