For hundreds of years, various strategies have been developed to make it more convenient for quilters to piece multi-angled quilts together. One of these solutions is called paper piecing, which is routinely used to piece the challenging corners of the Mariner's Compass quilt
. Paper piecing, as it title suggests, uses a special paper pattern onto which the fabric cuts are sewn. The pattern helps the quilter to perfectly stitch the pieces together so that the finalized top will lie out flat. Methods such as this are a fabulous help to our quilt-makers!
