Homemade quilts combine the warmth of a bed cover with a unique story told by the quilters from Lancaster County, PA. Every homemade quilt is as unique as the family, busy mother or Amish ladies group who uses a needle and thimble to thread stitch on the quilt. Some quilts involve hundreds of hours and thousands of stitches to create a unique patchwork quilt that will last for generations.

For hundreds of years, many different procedures have been perfected to make it simpler for quilt-makers to piece multi-angled quilts together. One of these tactics is called paper piecing, which is popularly taken advantage of to piece the intricate points of the Mariner's Compass quilts. Paper piecing, as it title signifies, uses a distinct paper pattern on which the material segments are sewn. The pattern directs the quilter to perfectly assemble the pieces together so that the completed top will lie out evenly. Solutions of this sort as this are a tremendous support to our quilters!
