Amish Homemade Quilt Facts
Over the centuries, a lot of methodologies have been cultivated to make it less complicated for quilt-makers to sew multi-angled quilts together. One of these procedures is named paper piecing, which is regularly applied to compose the intricate edges of the Mariner's Compass quilts
. Paper piecing, as it title illustrates, uses a specific paper pattern onto which the cloth segments are stitched. The pattern helps the quilter to perfectly stitch the pieces together so that the finalized top will lie out flat. Tactics of this sort as this are an effective help to our quilt-makers!
