ROBIN RUTH DESIGNS
ROBIN RUTH DESIGNS is bringing the Mariner’s Compass into the 21st Century!
What started as a quest to make a Mariner’s Compass quilt for her submarine officer husband, Robin Long took an idea she had in 1992 and launched Robin Ruth Design in January, 2015. She has developed a new line of revolutionary rulers, books, patterns and technique for making STRIP-PIECED mariner’s compass blocks in16 sizes – that’s right, NO PAPER PIECING!
This system of rulers begins with the Skinny Robin 16-Point and Fat Robin 16-Point Mariner's Compass Book and Ruler combos; each used to create slightly different mariner's compass blocks in 16 sizes (from 6"-36") using the exact same process. The only difference is that Skinny Robin is based on a 45˚ angle and Fat Robin is based on a 60˚angle. This revolutionary strip-piecing method enables you to make the once tedious and unapproachable mariner’s compass block quickly and accurately. Now you will be able to easily incorporate these blocks into your own creative quilt project!
