Paper Pieced Quilt Patterns – The origin of the patchwork dates back to the time when the smallest piece of cloth was priceless and was recovering. From these humble origins was born a real art, when one began to use scraps of fabrics to create rich and colorful drawings. It is necessary to take fabrics with tight threads that do not relax and whose weaving and texture are firm. Many of the many patchwork patterns known today owe their existence to American colonists of the eighteenth century.
The women met, exchanged pieces of cloth and made quilts. Each work on a specific part of the work and once complete. All the parts was sewn together to form the paper pieced quilt patterns. Place the inner frame of the template on the area of the fabric and align the base with the straight thread. Trace the outer contour with a tailor’s chalk (sold in haberdashery, the radius of the seam, there are several shades).
Center the paper pieced quilt patterns on the back of each piece of fabric, lining it with the straight line. Pin. Fold the opposite edges of the fabric over the paper and pin. Fold the rest of the fabric, making sure to cover each corner exactly. Place two pieces side by side, right side up, with equal edges. Assemble them using small stitches, taking only the fabric, without touching the paper (which will be remove later).
