Chain piecing is a great quilting technique. Line up the series of pieces and do them all at once. No cutting thread in between so it's fast and efficient.
For my Christmas quilt I needed a bunch of little triangles sewn together. No problem! I've got this! So between shuttling kids around in the car yesterday, doing laundry, and cooking dinner I made a long lovely chain of sewn triangles that looked like this:
They weren't supposed to be sewn long sides together. They were supposed to have short sides sewn together. Since I chain pieced them, I managed to make the same mistake about 60 times. Go me. This nice little pile of half-square triangles got put into a bag to be used someday for something else.
Back to the cutting board today. A million more tiny triangles.
We finally turned the heat on and I put both cat beds by a vent. They opted to share one though. Hestia brought along a toy.
