Did you know?
Over the centuries, various methodologies have been cultivated to make it less complicated for quilt-makers to stitch multi-angled quilts together. One of these procedures is called paper piecing, which is nearly always applied to put together the intricate edges of the Mariner's Compass quilts
. Paper piecing, as it title designates, uses an unique paper pattern onto which the fabric fragments are sewn. The pattern directs the quilter to correctly sew the pieces together so that the finished top will lie out flat. Methods of this sort as this are an effective aid to our quilt-makers!
