Over the centuries, quite a few strategies have been developed to make it much easier for quilt-makers to stitch multi-angled quilts together. One of these tactics is paper piecing, which is regularly employed to compose the complicated corners of the Mariner's Compass quilt. Paper piecing, as it title indicates, uses an unique paper pattern onto which the material fragments are stitched. The pattern leads the quilter to successfully sew the pieces together so that the finalized top will lay out evenly. Methodologies of this sort as this are a fabulous aid to our quilters!
