Did you know?

For hundreds of years, numerous methods have been perfected to make it easier for quilt-makers to piece multi-angled quilts together. One of these techniques is paper piecing, which is ordinarily used to assemble the complex points of the Mariner's Compass quilts. Paper piecing, as it title implies, uses a special paper pattern onto which the material pieces are stitched. The pattern guides the quilter to correctly sew the pieces together so that the completed top will lay out evenly. Strategies of this sort as this are a marvelous aid to our quilters!
