Chain Quilting

Yesterday at 10:30 while I was working with two students the principal came onto the intercom to announce that there would be a snow day on Wednesday (today). I think my outburst of excitement was louder than the two students combined. I mean, what's better than finding out in the morning that you don't have to get out of bed because there is a snow day? Finding out there is a snow day before you even go to bed. While the two students planned to stay up late watching who knows what on the Disney Channel, I planned to do some serious sewing. 

And that I did. I used this technique and finished chain piecing all of the squares for the quilt I'm working on. I just had to get a picture of the long chain before cutting it apart and making it into pinwheel squares.

Pretty huh? It makes me think of the bunting I have want to make for decorations for our wedding.

Now all of the chained pieces are cut apart and most have been sewn into squares. I stayed up far too late last night working on them, then stayed up even later watching several episodes of "The Office" on Netflix. Did you know Pam and Jim kissed?! We just had to watch more to find out what happened. Today I thought about doing some more sewing but Charlie and I went skiing instead.

Just a few more blocks to go and then I can start sewing it all together.



  1. SPOILER ALERT...Just wait til season 6!!! They have a baby!! We've got all the seasons on DVD and have been watching them non-stop since Christmas. If you really want a good time I'll let you borrow them so you can watch the blooper reels... soooo funny!

  2. ooo i love chain piecing, so fast, and much les thread clipping and wasted thread!!! I like the fabric what is it?

  3. Really, chain clipping is a very good idea to work on. Lauren you have done a very good job and also, I love to watch “The Office”. But I am not a regular viewer as I get free time very rarely. Thanks for a great piece of sewing here.


Thanks for stopping by, I love reading what you have to say :)
