For hundreds of years, a variety of solutions have been perfected to make it simpler for quilters to stitch multi-angled quilts together. One of these tactics is named paper piecing, which is commonly utilized to assemble the elaborate angles of the Mariner's Compass quilts
. Paper piecing, as it name suggests, uses a special paper pattern on top of which the material fragments are stitched. The pattern helps the quilter to accurately stitch the pieces together so that the finished top will lie out flat. Solutions of this sort as this are a fantastic help to our quilt-makers!
