    I want to make a Mariner's Compass quilt so badly BUT I can't stand to paper piece so I need templates! I'd also like to find it online so I can use the projector at work to enlarge it to about a 36" block to hand piece....and only make 4 blocks for a whole quilt. I've looked and can't find one with templates.....but you all are so good at finding things that I'm asking you to try!!! PLEASE??????

    Thanks so much!

    Your idea sounds great and I hope you find a templalte for it or you may have to design your own.

    I have always PP these.

    I love your puppy. Maybe you saw my look alike on another post!

    Why can't you use the PP foundation to make the templates?
    There are really only a few unique shapes.
    Just add a seam allowance to each piece.

    How many points do you want?

    MTS, such a simple solution, I should have thought of that.

    If you're interested, I have a Mariner's Compass pattern that has templates. I have never opened it but on the back it says that the book includes templates (these appear from the back to be acrylic templates). If this is something you would be interested in, PM me.

    Cheryl Phillips has a great book...Wedgeworks 2...that has Mariner's Compass up to 32 points. The Mariner's Compass is acutally 3D. No paper piecing, but you do need the wedge ruler. I have made a couple, they are fast, easy and fun. I hope this helps.

    I made a "compass" from Wedge Works II and it came out really good. The acryllic templates are included with the book.

    I made 2 of them with the Cheryle Phillips pattern and they are 3 D and I love the one on the wall. Some where in the picture section is my quilt. You can do a search for it, but I had all of the piecing done in an evening. It has 32 points I tihnk. It is by far the easiest mariners compass I have made. Good luck wiht what ever you do. HUggies, Fay
