The next items to piece were 9 patch blocks and setting triangle units.
They went together really well. Here is how I pieced the 9-patch blocks.
I made strip sets like the ones in my Straight Strip Set post. Then subcut them into 2″x5″ rectangles.
Here is my pinning technique…
I sandwich the units together making sure the seams lock together. As you pinch them together you can feel the seams locked next to each other. Then I place a pin on either side of the seam.
I like these long pins that are easy to grab as I’m sewing. I take just a small “bite” of fabric with the pins.
Here is how I pin each unit before sewing.
As I said in my earlier post, proper pressing is very important also. I press after each piece I sew together.
