Quilt Progress...

Check out the quilt progress!
Chain piecing and assembly line pressing! It's a great way to make multiple blocks.

Blocks in the making...
Chain piecing the next set. 

A stack of 20, ready for the next strip.

For chain piecing, you sew the seam on each block,  lining one  block immediately following the other.  Do not cut the threads in between.  This really speeds up the process!

Once you complete the "chain" you will snip the threads between each piece, and press the new seam.    This one looks a bit wonky, but trimming it to size will take care of that.

All ready to snip and press, and then...
...the finished block!

Coming up next -- sewing the top together.
