Mariner's Compass Stars

Mariner's Compass Stars

In Quilters Newsletter’s September/October 2008 issue, Carol Doak presented a workshop on foundation piecing Mariner’s Compass Stars in conjunction with her latest book, Mariner’s Compass Stars (C&T Publishing, 2007). To celebrate Quilters Newsletter’s 39th birthday, Carol, a frequent contributor, designed QN’s Birthday Star just for us. The pattern is given half-size in the issue; full-size foundations are given here.

Mariner's Compass wall hanging
I saw the star and thought even though I'm not an advanced quilter, I could do that. I had no trouble following the paper patern except for the center. Getting the seams exactly right is a problem for me. The cutting instructions are vary vague. Anyone have any tips or suggestions? Help

I had never made a Mariner's Star before. I really enjoyed making this wall hanging and have it in my office at work. ADW April 28, 2009 @ 10:00am
