What is Chain Stitching

Posted by Ruth on 21 June 2012 | 3 Comments


Today I began Cricket's 30 day Photo Challenge. That is, taking a photo every day for 30 days. How about joining me? You can find out more here: http://tech.v7n.com/2012/06/21/one-photo-a-day/

I am working on a new class project and I happened to snap this shot. I'm making 40 blocks so the easiest way is to chain stitch them. What's chain stitching? Chain stitching is when you sew all the same seam of each block continuously without cutting the thread. In the photo you can see a trail of blocks behind the foot all linked together while I start on the next block. Once finished, I simply snip all the blocks apart. A great way to speed up your quilting.

  • No need to back stitch. Not necessary in patchwork.

  • Do you ever do backstitching when you do this, or do you just use a small stitch? Thanks.

  • I have always wanted to make a quilt and will be following your 30 day challenge!
