Amish Homemade Quilt Facts
Over the centuries, quite a number of strategies have been perfected to make it much simpler for quilters to stitch multi-angled quilts together. One of these methodologies is paper piecing, which is often times adopted to combine the complex angles of the Mariner's Compass quilt
. Paper piecing, as it name suggests, uses a distinct paper pattern on which the cloth pieces are stitched. The pattern helps the seamstress to successfully assemble the pieces together so that the finished top will lie out flat. Techniques of this sort as this are a tremendous help to our quilters!
