Thanks for stopping by for the fourth installment, previous posts in the series are:
I’m no expert and let’s face it, the sort of piecing I do is hardly complicated but these are the things I do that you may or may not find useful when piecing quilts.
Chain Piecing is a quick way to piece identical blocks simultaneously. For example: If you needed to piece 10 log cabin blocks you would start with the center square and strip A (right sides together) and feed through the machine. Instead of cutting the thread take the next center square and strip A and feed through, repeat this until all center squares have their strip A attached. Trim thread between each block, press and then grab strip B and repeat the process.

Next week I will wrap up the series with basting, quilting and binding.
