Welcome back to our Tuesday Tutorial! Today we’re going to review chain piecing and opposing seams. If you’re an absolute beginner, you may have heard of this technique, but not really know what it means. Kathy Patterson, our senior editor, uses squares from a simple baby quilt to demonstrate the chain piecing approach while telling you about several benefits of this method.

Kathy continues with her demonstration by pressing the seams of her rows in opposing directions, and showing you how that enables you to stitch those rows together with perfectly nested seam allowances.
