If anyone has a currently valid link for a Mariner's
Compass pattern to down load for foundation piecing,
I'd really appreciate it. It could even be a pattern
that is similar to the MC. Anywhere form 12" to 18"
would be great. I only need to make one, so do not want
to buy a complete pattern pack for this. I DO have the
Judy Mathiason book, so I will use that as a last
resort. I am being lazy on this! LOL
Thanks, PAT in VA/USA

I found this paper pieced one - try googling 'free mariners compass
pattern' - there are pages of possibles but not all are pp.
Hope this helps, jennellh (change the mail to news)

Re: Mariner's Compass Foundation Pattern
Pat, this is certainly a lame suggestion but I've made a Mariner's Compass
quilt in the last year.  Just guessing, the pattern is from QNM or
Quiltmaker.  It was a very straightforward pattern with no nasty errors or
tricky details.  For a fee (because it would take me hours and hours) I'll
go hunt the magazine for you.  How much chocolate is it worth to you?  Polly

Re: Mariner's Compass Foundation Pattern
Pat, Jennellh's pattern is much prettier than the one I was thinking about.
Wow, that's a beauty.  And yes, it is much too hot to pay chocolate fees.

Mailed and posted.

Polly: Thanks. Is the block in a fairly recent issue?
The past year or two? I have QNM going back 20 years. I
have SOME QM, but probably not many recent ones. I
can't send chocolate .... too hot. So you'll just have
to 'trust' me!! LOL
Pat, going to search some magazines, in hot Virginia

Re: Mariner's Compass Foundation Pattern
Actually, I am in Carol's group. I just never have time
to read more than a couple posts, then I hit delete.
The group seems to always be discussing some challenge
or event, but I don't ever see the original
announcement for the event. Sooooooo, I am always
clueless and can't follow any of the threads. I can't
wait for a book ..... I need to make this block this
week. Thanks. PAT
