Amish Homemade Quilt Trivia

For hundreds of years, quite a few tactics have been developed to make it much simpler for quilters to piece multi-angled quilts together. One of these techniques is called paper piecing, which is nearly always employed to piece the complicated edges of the Mariner's Compass quilts. Paper piecing, as it name implies, uses a specific paper pattern on top of which the cloth segments are stitched. The pattern guides the needleworker to correctly sew the pieces together so that the finished top will lie out evenly. Methods such as this are a tremendous aid to our quilters!
