Description Hooray - We have enough students registered so this class is a go! We extended the registration date to January 2. Tell your friends they can still sign up and join the fun. 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 Mariners 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. Paula will explain how to turn a Marinerís Compass design into a paper foundation piecing pattern. Join the many cultures that have shared their delight of this circular design over the centuries. Paulaís step-by-step process and clear handouts will have you sailing the seas!
