This book is a design resource and step-by-step guide to new patterns and shapes for the traditional Mariner's Compass quilt motif. Learn to replace the traditional round pattern shape with ovals. Discover how to eliminate the curved edge of the oval and replace it with eye-catching block shapes, including the hexagon, rectangle, and diamond. Each of the eight different patterns is provided in two sizes, 5" x 8" and 6" x 10", and has three different variations: Solid Points, Split Points, and Solid and Split Points. Discover how to appliqué the center piece, rather than piecing it. This important book will take quilters through all the steps necessary to succeed, from the initial gathering of supplies to the final quilt layout and design. This book will be a treasured addition to any quilter's library.
