Years ago, one of my sisters gave me a bag of scraps, some of them Laura Ashley samples. Every once in awhile, I bring them out of their hiding place and play with them. They are mostly small squares, perfect for making 9-patch quilt blocks.
With no particular plan in mind, I improvised and decided to sew a few squares together. Then I remembered reading about “chaining,” a method used by quilters to stitch small pieces together without stopping and starting your sewing machine. Once your initial pieces are stitched, you simply carry on by inserting the next squares under the needle.
What a time saver!
