I sewed five more rows together for a total of 20 rows in three hunks of multiple rows waiting to be sewn together. You may be asking yourself: why not just sew one row to the next until all thirty-one are sewn together? Well, it’s a pain to keep moving all that stuff around and through the sewing machine over and over again, but it’s also a way to keep things from being handled too much and needing additional and repeated ironing. You’ll just have to trust me on that.

  1. I’m with you. I assemble block quilts in sections, then sew the sections together. You have less weight you’re moving around, so less distortion and pull on the fabric and seams from all that weight. And it’s easier! I think non-quilters would be surprised at how physical quilting can be.

    • Agreed Melanie! When I sew the last two sections together, I’ll be able to give it a quick going over with the iron and I’ll be all done. Thanks for the comment!
