Amish Homemade Quilt Facts
For hundreds of years, quite a number of tactics have been developed to make it less complicated for quilt-makers to piece multi-angled quilts together. One of these procedures is paper piecing, which is usually employed to assemble the complicated corners of the Mariner's Compass quilts
. Paper piecing, as it title indicates, uses a specific paper pattern onto which the material segments are sewn. The pattern guides the seamstress to accurately stitch the pieces together so that the completed top will lay out flat. Procedures of this sort as this are a very good help to our quilters!
