I'm going to have to ask a real stupid question.

how do they sew the seams?
Paper pieced is all I can think of?

I would go batty sewing stitches that small. They are absolutely beautiful. The quilters that made them need to be commended for such great work.

Maybe it was Sally Collins........ She makes quilts like these, and I have one of her books...
