Adding pieced units to a strip of fabric 3. Chain piecing sewn units together Place two strips right sides together. SEWING STRIPS TOGETHER The instructions for every quilt will tell you which strips to sew together in which order, and how to cut them apart. Following the specific instructions for the quilt you plan to make, take two strips to be sewn together and place them face to face, or right sides together. Although the selvage edge will not remain in our finished quilt, do not cut it off.
Remember that all the instructions in this book assume a width of only 40” (102cm), allowing for any inconsistency in the fabric width. PRESSING After each set of strips is sewn, it is important to press the seams for neat and accurate results. After each seam is complete, it must be pressed in three steps: From the back, press the seam to one side. 1. Press as sewn: Pressing is not a back-and-forth movement like ironing. Simply put the iron down onto the finished seam, lift and move to the next section until the whole seam is pressed.
But cotton thread often produces lint that can build up in the bobbin case and in the upper tension wheel. 2. Polyester: Polyester thread is strong and stable. It is often thinner than cotton thread, so it will sink into the fabric and more will fit onto a bobbin. Polyester usually produces less lint than cotton. 3. Poly/cotton: Poly/cotton blends are strong like polyester and soft like cotton. These blends are also usually the least expensive options. Ask five quilters what thread they recommend and you will get five different (and impassioned) answers.
