Amish Homemade Quilt Trivia
Over the centuries, many types of solutions have been cultivated to make it more convenient for quilters to sew multi-angled quilts together. One of these tactics is called paper piecing, which is frequently used to assemble the elaborate points of the Mariner's Compass quilts
. Paper piecing, as it title suggests, uses a particular paper pattern on top of which the fabric fragments are stitched. The pattern helps the needleworker to successfully assemble the pieces together so that the completed top will lie out flat.
