Amish Homemade Quilt Trivia

For hundreds of years, a lot of tactics have been developed to make it much easier for quilt-makers to piece multi-angled quilts together. One of these methodologies is named paper piecing, which is frequently adopted to compose the complex angles of the Mariner's Compass quilt. Paper piecing, as it name suggests, uses a particular paper pattern on which the cloth cuts are sewn. The pattern leads the needleworker to accurately stitch the pieces together so that the completed top will lay out evenly. Solutions such as this are a very good help to our quilters!
