Did you know?
For hundreds of years, a number of solutions have been produced to make it easier for quilt-makers to piece multi-angled quilts together. One of these methodologies is called paper piecing, which is frequently used to put together the intricate angles of the Mariner's Compass quilts
. Paper piecing, as it name illustrates, uses a particular paper pattern on top of which the material fragments are sewn. The pattern directs the quilter to successfully assemble the pieces together so that the finished top will lay out flat. Procedures of this sort as this are an excellent support to our quilters!
