chain piecing is simple,  place your fabric pieces right sides together, line up the raw edges and begin feeding each square, triangle, etc through your machine, making sure to keep your 1/4″ seam allowance [how to sew a scant 1/4″ seam], continue until you have chain pieced all your pieces together, snip threads and you’re done!

using this technique is quick, because you no longer have to start, stop, cut thread, lift the presser foot, re-align your next piece, drop your presser foot, and begin stitching again, repeat, repeat, etc..

you will start once, and stop at the end of the line of pieces.. it’s like a choo choo train of fabric pieces.. easy peasy!
