Amish Handmade Quilt Trivia
For hundreds of years, a number of procedures have been cultivated to make it much easier for quilters to sew multi-angled quilts together. One of these methods is called paper piecing, which is typically employed to combine the complicated angles of the Mariner's Compass quilt
. Paper piecing, as it name signifies, uses a distinct paper pattern on top of which the material segments are sewn. The pattern directs the needleworker to successfully sew the pieces together so that the finished top will lie out flat. Techniques such as this are a marvelous aid to our quilters!
