Amish Handmade Quilt Facts
For hundreds of years, a variety of techniques have been developed to make it less complicated for quilters to stitch multi-angled quilts together. One of these procedures is called paper piecing, which is generally applied to piece the intricate points of the Mariner's Compass quilts
. Paper piecing, as it name suggests, uses a particular paper pattern on which the cloth segments are sewn. The pattern helps the quilter to properly sew the pieces together so that the finalized top will lay out flat. Methodologies such as this are a fantastic support to our quilters!
