My New Trick to Piecing

Although there are many tricks to piecing, chain piecing is the best with a leader.  This avoids the extra trimming of excess thread that results in a mound of snippets that cling to every piece.  As I continued on my quilting adventure with my hexagon quilt, my leader for this session was frequently used as I was able to piece half of the quilt top.  This leader was used each time I started or ended a chain.

  2. I love the hexagons! Can’t wait to see the whole thing finished! Your leader looks kind of like a spider web or something with all the lines of thread! Hahaha.
