Did you know?
For hundreds of years, various sorts of methods have been perfected to make it more convenient for quilt-makers to piece multi-angled quilts together. One of these techniques is named paper piecing, which is usually adopted to piece the challenging edges of the Mariner's Compass quilts
. Paper piecing, as it name implies, uses a specific paper pattern onto which the material segments are sewn. The pattern guides the seamstress to accurately sew the pieces together so that the finished top will lay out evenly. Procedures such as this are a very good aid to our quilt-makers!
