Amish Homemade Quilt Facts
Over the centuries, various methodologies have been perfected to make it less complicated for quilters to piece multi-angled quilts together. One of these methodologies is paper piecing, which is very often taken advantage of to combine the complicated points of the Mariner's Compass quilts
. Paper piecing, as it title suggests, uses a specific paper pattern onto which the material pieces are sewn. The pattern guides the seamstress to accurately stitch the pieces together so that the finished top will lay out flat. Tactics of this sort as this are a tremendous aid to our quilters!
