Did you know?
Over the centuries, an array of solutions have been produced to make it easier for quilters to stitch multi-angled quilts together. One of these strategies is paper piecing, which is very often adopted to compose the intricate angles of the Mariner's Compass quilts
. Paper piecing, as it name signifies, uses a specific paper pattern on which the fabric fragments are stitched. The pattern directs the seamstress to correctly sew the pieces together so that the finished top will lay out flat. Methodologies such as this are a tremendous support to our quilters!
