Mariner's Compass

Mariner’s Compass

Use Quiltsmart’s printed fusible interfacing to foundation-piece this popular classic.   The compass is the same for all sizes; borders determine the size of the quilt you make.

 Fabric Requirements: 

See next page

Other materials and supplies:

  • “Mariner’s Compass” kit from Quiltsmart:  instructions, and printed fusible interfacing for foundation piecing
  • Rotary cutter
  • Rotary ruler (6 x 24 is OK, but may be a little awkward; 6x12 or even smaller will work)
  • Rotary mat—You will be using this to trim as you go, so you won’t need a large mat:  18 x 24 would be fine, smaller can work. DO NOT buy a new mat just for this—bring what you have.
  • Thread to match or blend with your fabrics
  • Sewing machine in good working order, with foot or other method to sew accurate ¼” , and metal (preferably) foot that allows you to see the center in order to sew on a line. 
  • Standard sewing notions:  pins, spare machine needles, etc.
  • Appliqué pressing sheet, if you have one.  I will have two for you to use in class

Note: I am not asking you to cut for borders/binding;  we’ll talk about options during class and it may affect your cutting.

The colors in the chart refer to the compass in the photo below.  (Cardinal points are the gold and orange points.)

Fabric Requirements:

We will order out for lunch ( from Pizza Counter, Pizza Hut, or Jimmy John’s, according to participants’ wishes) but you may bring your own lunch, if you like.  The shop has a refrigerator, microwave, and toaster oven.
