For hundreds of years, various kinds of procedures have been cultivated to make it much simpler for quilters to stitch multi-angled quilts together. One of these methods is called paper piecing, which is very often used to combine the complex edges of the Mariner's Compass quilts. Paper piecing, as it title suggests, uses a special paper pattern onto which the cloth fragments are sewn. The pattern helps the seamstress to properly stitch the pieces together so that the finalized top will lay out flat. Strategies of this sort as this are an excellent help to our quilters!
