Sometimes, however, I lay out a scrap block in a particular order only to sew the wrong sections together. It's so annoying. Here's a way to avoid this problem.
1. Lay out the block as you'd like it.
|The nine patches of this variable star block are laid out as I intend to sew them.|
|Chain piecing the two squares from each row.|
|The first two squares in the first two rows are sewed and the thread is still chained between them.|
|Chain piecing the bottom squares to each column. Ender #1 is in the background.|
|Two sets of chain piecing completed. (Sorry, the columns look like rows so you can see the chaining.)|
|Sewing two columns together. Notice how chains hold the third column in place on the left.|
|Two columns sewed. Ready to sew the last column.|
Wishing everyone peace and joy throughout the New Year.
Enjoy the day.
