Have you ever heard that drafting and piecing a Mariner’s Compass was difficult? Following Paula’s detailed instruction you will find that this is only a myth! You will learn how to draft a Mariner’s Compass in circle, oval and off-center formats. If you know how to use a pencil and a ruler, this class is for you! Add in a compass and an eraser and it becomes as easy as 1, 2, 3! Drafted designs may be used for the center of a medallion quilt, a pillow or one of many blocks in a quilt.
