What is "Pieced" - Definition & Explanation

A look created by sewing several pieces of material together to form the garment, much like a quilt.
In this type of quilting, shapes are cut and sewn together to form a design. There is no background piece and the seams are hidden on the back side of the quilt top. Pieces may be geometric or may be curved.
