Did you know?
For hundreds of years, numerous procedures have been perfected to make it much easier for quilters to piece multi-angled quilts together. One of these methodologies is paper piecing, which is typically adopted to piece the intricate edges of the Mariner's Compass quilts
. Paper piecing, as it name suggests, uses a distinct paper pattern on which the fabric pieces are sewn. The pattern guides the quilter to perfectly sew the pieces together so that the finalized top will lie out flat. Methodologies of this sort as this are a tremendous help to our quilt-makers!
