Mariner’s Compass Block Change

We have improved the Mariner’s Compass templates in Quiltster!

In order to better match the actual pattern, we have changed the background units that fall behind the outer rope. Previously, when the block was selected, all three sections were automatically colored the same.  Now, all three sections may be colored individually!  This change will automatically display for all new Mariner’s Compass projects starting today, 12/17/16.

If you’ve previously created a Mariner’s Compass, you will need to manually add the new block group to your existing project.  Here’s how:

  1. Go to “My Projects”.  Find your Mariner’s Compass project and open it.
  2. Select the background units that fall behind the outer rope (see image below), then click the edit button in the bottom center of the screen.


3. Select the single block option for this piece.


4. Color each piece individually, as normal.
