About Robin: What started as a quest to make a Mariner’s Compass quilt for her submarine officer husband, Robin Long took an idea she had in 1992 and launched Robin Ruth Design in January of 2015.  She has developed a line of revolutionary rulers, books, patterns and technique for making STRIP PIECED mariner’s compass blocks in 16 sizes – that’s right, NO PAPER PIECING! 

When she isn’t on the road teaching and giving workshops, she works on many new projects that bring the mariner’s compass into the 21st century! Her products are sold in quilt shops across the U.S. and around the world.
