Save Time With The Chain Piecing Technique


A simple patchwork piecing technique saves time and improves our accuracy. So why not try the chain piecing technique?

Start with arranging our quilt pieces prior to starting!

This not only speeds up the sewing process, but it helps us stay organized and hopefully eliminates us having to search for the seam ripper!

Don’t rush the starting point for each unit that we are stitching.

Staring at the 1/4 inch seam for the first few stitches is critical to make our units line up when it’s time to sew the units together with the other units.

The video below is a great demostration from Needlepointers for us to learn how to do chain piecing.

    Not a new concept. I don’t really know any quilter who doesn’t do this.

    this is a great tutorial for beginners, a young friend was making her first 9 patch, i ask her if she was chain stitching, she said what is that.. we older quilters take it for granted everyone knows these time savers.
