I learned about strip piecing with my first quilt, the Irish Chain. The pattern seemed simple enough.
But after learning I'd have to cut out all those squares one by one, I felt discouraged. I wondered how long that would take.
Fortunately, I never had to find out. That's because I learned a faster, more accurate way to make my units. It's called strip piecing.
The good news: This method also works with shapes like rectangles, triangles, and diamonds.
Let me show you how this technique works. For this example, I'm using three strips. But the number of strips you'll need depends on the block you're making.
This strip piecing fabric method makes quilting so much easier. I admire the pioneer women who cut out their shapes one at a time. On the other hand, I embrace the simplicity and speed of modern strip piecing.
