You may have heard of chain piecing quilt blocks, but have you chain pieced quilt rows? You can actually chain piece an entire quilt top in about 15-30 minutes based on how many blocks you have. This technique will cut your sewing time in half and keep you organized at the same time!
I have tried writing down instructions for this technique a couple times, but it never seems to make total sense. This really is one of those things you have to see before the lightbulb blinks on. If you follow my Instagram stories, you saw me demo this a few weeks ago. The one problem with IG stories, however, is that they disappear after 24 hours.
Since posting that quick and dirty tutorial about chain piecing quilt rows the first time, I have had multiple people ask me if I have those videos saved anywhere. Sadly, I didn't think enough ahead to do that.
Well, don't worry, my lovelies! I've made you an official YouTube video so it won't go away after 24 hours and you can keep coming back year after year to remind yourself, "Wait...how did I sew all of those row together that one time?"
See the video below for a step by step tutorial on the bestest and fastest way to sew your quilt tops together. Friends, I might even go so far as to say that once you try out this technique you will never go back to sewing individual quilt rows again. I might even go so far as to say that this will change your life so dramatically that you may feel inclined to write a comment below. Cause ya know, getting a comment from you feels a bit like Christmas morning.
One more thing to add is that if you would like to make a quilt just like the one in the video, you toooootally can. The pattern is Triangle Jitters and can be downloaded instantly here. For the fabric I used various cream scraps and an old IKEA duvet. This IKEA duvet to be exact.
