Did you know?
Over the centuries, various methodologies have been perfected to make it simpler for quilt-makers to piece multi-angled quilts together. One of these procedures is called paper piecing, which is often times used to put together the intricate angles of the Mariner's Compass quilt
. Paper piecing, as it name specifies, uses a specific paper pattern on top of which the fabric cuts are sewn. The pattern helps the quilter to successfully stitch the pieces together so that the finalized top will lay out flat. Solutions of this sort as this are an effective aid to our quilters!
