Has anyone a technique for adding a frame for a mariners compass. I want to sew It as one piece not appliqué the work onto a background.

I think you can deal with it like a drunkard's path but I googled for you and found lots of different you tube videos like this one too.

Thank you , that really works. I tried today by using four separate pieces then seaming them together but that method is even easier.

Hi Laurel,

I am probably a bit late replying to this, but when I made a Mariners compass I paper pieced it. It seemed to work well and wasn't too difficult. I then started to build borders around it.compass.jpg

It now has sampler blocks around it and is the centre of a king quilt I am making.

Good luck with yours
