    Hi Sandra,

    I had seen this one from Carol's site-----but what I am really looking for is a total pattern for a queen size quilt. I have only been quilting for 3 yrs, and am not at the point where I can design my own pattern. I know there are some books out there with the pattern in it, so I may end up having to buy a book just to get the pattern. Thanks.

    If you Google Mariners Compass Quilt Patterns queen size go to photos you may come up with something you like I just looked and there are quite a few even if you use a smaller pattern just make more blocks and add them on to get the size you want.
    Warm Regards,

    I just saw Judy Mathieson's book, Mariner's Compass Quilts—Setting a New Course, on sale for $5 at the C&T online clearance sale. Even with shipping, it's a steal.

    And a great book.

    http://www.ctpub.com/productdetails.cfm?PC=886

    The center of my avatar quilt is from her first book - the Costa Rican Cartwheel block.
    MC's are my favorite block - love drafting them.

    I don't know if it's still available but she has a companion CD with scores of different compasses that you could print out in any size/dimensions you wanted
    It's a little quirky when printing - this was ca. 1998 - but I use it all the time.

    I wish she'd reissue it (with some technical upgrading).
    I'd buy it even though I have the original.

    I've never done a Mariner's Compass, but have to say, they look really hard! Are they as hard to make as they look? Are they paper pieced? (Is that a "duh" questions?)

    I Googled 'Mariner's Compass quilt' and 'New York Beauty quilt' and found a lot of free patterns. Here is simple one, but there are no directions so it wouldn't work for me as I've never paper pieced.

    http://www.quiltsmart.com/khxc/index...arinerscompass I have this kit for a mariner's compass but I haven't tried it. I think it will make it a lot easier to do though.

    Hi,

    thanks everyone for your help! Everyone is so nice here! One member has some books, so now just have to decide which one will work the best for me. I have some really beautiful pics of mariner's stars, so I think I am ready to try it.
    Nothing ventured - nothing gained. Thanks again.

    Thanks.
    Go to Jinny Beyer's website. She has tons and tons of these as freebies. You can download the Moonglow quilt pattern free also. That pattern has 13 Mariner's Compass blocks.

    Brenda Hennings has a book with multiple mariner compass patterns as well as full quilt patterns. Peggy Martin has a Craftsy video that contains a "Sailor's Delight" pattern that's very nice. Both of these women use paper piecing to make the pattern. I am currently making one by Brenda Hennings but found that the one by Peggy Martin was easier for me to do, especially due to the video and great directions. Good luck finding one that you like and can do.

    If you are very comfortable with paper piecing, Judy Neimeyer has a fabulous Mariner's Compass quilt pattern. I believe her website is quiltworx.com I love her patterns and thorough instructions.

    I have just finished and taught classes on the Mariner's Compass. Try Quiltsmart! It is done on a fusible grid, it's easy and all the points come out perfect. You can also watch how it's done on You Tube.
