|1||VideoVideo 20: Chain Piecing||Chain piecing allows you to save thread and sew your units quickly. Start with a small piece of fabric and add the units one by one. You don't want to overlap them, feed one unit at a time leaving two stitches in between each unit. Once your units are sewn, clip between the units and you are now ready to move to the next step in your block.||10/21/10||Free||View In iTunes|
