    Can anyone recommend a paper pieced Mariner's Compass pattern?
    If you've purchased one, please include where you purchased it.

    Thanks,
    SewingLadyDi :)

    It's on my list to do someday. When I get there I'll need a pattern too.

    I love paper piecing I just learned so fun and easy. I want to make a mariners compass one of these days!

    Moonglow is a free pattern on jinnybeyer's site, and one of it's options is paperpiecing I think.

    Carol Doak literally "wrote the book" on paper piecing and she has an awesome book "Paper Pieced Mariner's Compass"
    You can't go wrong with it.

    My favorite Mariner's Compass pattern is the one by Brenda Henning of Bear Paw Productions:

    http://bearpawproductions.com/QuiltingBasics.htm

    It is easy to follow, has 'stop dots' that help a lot and it turns out fabulous. There used to be a video of her doing this on Quilters TV; I'm not sure if it's still there anymore.

    I agree that Carol Doak is the BEST teacher of Paper Piecing ever...,however you simply must see the Mariner's Compass designs of Judy Mathieson. Do a Google Images search to see her works.
