Amish Homemade Quilt Facts

Over the centuries, a variety of procedures have been cultivated to make it simpler for quilters to stitch multi-angled quilts together. One of these methods is named paper piecing, which is regularly employed to combine the intricate corners of the Mariner's Compass quilts. Paper piecing, as it name indicates, uses a special paper pattern on which the fabric segments are sewn. The pattern directs the needleworker to accurately sew the pieces together so that the completed top will lay out evenly. Techniques such as this are an excellent support to our quilt-makers!
