Did you know?
For hundreds of years, a variety of methods have been perfected to make it simpler for quilt-makers to sew multi-angled quilts together. One of these procedures is called paper piecing, which is routinely employed to put together the complex corners of the Mariner's Compass quilts
. Paper piecing, as it name indicates, uses a specific paper pattern on which the material segments are sewn. The pattern guides the quilter to accurately sew the pieces together so that the completed top will lay out flat. Procedures of this sort as this are a great help to our quilters!
