For hundreds of years, a variety of tactics have been developed to make it much easier for quilters to stitch multi-angled quilts together. One of these tactics is named paper piecing, which is popularly utilized to piece the complicated angles of the Mariner's Compass quilt
. Paper piecing, as it title signifies, uses a specific paper pattern onto which the cloth segments are stitched. The pattern guides the seamstress to accurately assemble the pieces together so that the finalized top will lie out flat. Methodologies of this sort as this are an excellent support to our quilt-makers!
