Amish Homemade Quilt Trivia
Over the centuries, various sorts of tactics have been cultivated to make it simpler for quilt-makers to stitch multi-angled quilts together. One of these procedures is called paper piecing, which is nearly always used to put together the complicated corners of the Mariner's Compass quilt
. Paper piecing, as it title illustrates, uses a specific paper pattern on which the cloth sections are sewn. The pattern leads the seamstress to perfectly sew the pieces together so that the finished top will lay out flat. Tactics of this sort as this are a great help to our quilt-makers!
