Speed up your machine quilting by using a technique called 'chain piecing.' Match the first two pieces to be joined, stitch them together and stop the machine. Do not cut the threads. Match the next two pieces and place them under the pressure foot leaving a small gap after the first unit. Continue in this manner for as many units as you'd like. Snip apart, press, and you are ready to move on to the next step.
