Over the centuries, an array of procedures have been perfected to make it less complicated for quilt-makers to sew multi-angled quilts together. One of these tactics is named paper piecing, which is typically adopted to combine the complex edges of the Mariner's Compass quilt
. Paper piecing, as it name suggests, uses a special paper pattern on top of which the cloth segments are stitched. The pattern helps the quilter to properly sew the pieces together so that the finished top will lie out flat. Procedures of this sort as this are an excellent help to our quilt-makers!
