Over the centuries, various sorts of tactics have been cultivated to make it simpler for quilt-makers to sew multi-angled quilts together. One of these methodologies is named paper piecing, which is nearly always applied to combine the challenging corners of the Mariner's Compass quilt
. Paper piecing, as it name designates, uses a distinct paper pattern on top of which the material pieces are stitched. The pattern leads the quilter to properly sew the pieces together so that the completed top will lie out flat. Tactics such as this are a great aid to our quilters!
