Amish Handmade Quilt Facts

For hundreds of years, various sorts of methods have been produced to make it much easier for quilt-makers to piece multi-angled quilts together. One of these strategies is paper piecing, which is regularly adopted to combine the complex edges 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 stitched. The pattern leads the needleworker to successfully sew the pieces together so that the finalized top will lay out evenly. Techniques of this sort as this are an excellent aid to our quilters!
