Did you know?
Over the centuries, quite a number of methods have been produced to make it simpler for quilt-makers to stitch multi-angled quilts together. One of these methodologies is called paper piecing, which is routinely taken advantage of to combine the challenging angles of the Mariner's Compass quilts
. Paper piecing, as it title specifies, uses a special paper pattern onto which the material pieces are stitched. The pattern leads the quilter to properly stitch the pieces together so that the finished top will lie out evenly. Strategies such as this are a very good support to our quilt-makers!
