Over the centuries, a lot of solutions have been perfected to make it much easier for quilters to stitch multi-angled quilts together. One of these methodologies is paper piecing, which is often taken advantage of to combine the elaborate edges of the Mariner's Compass quilt
. Paper piecing, as it name illustrates, uses a specific paper pattern on top of which the fabric cuts are stitched. The pattern leads the quilter to perfectly stitch the pieces together so that the finalized top will lie out flat. Techniques of this sort as this are a fabulous help to our quilters!
