    I'm going to make a Chinese Coin quilt using scraps. How should I piece them together? Should I start with two and just keep adding another one on or should I do a certain # and then add them to another set of that same #?

    Thanks

    I like piecing them in groups then join the groups. This way I can assembly line piece them by chain stitching together a bunch of twos, then put those twos into fours, then the fours together into eights, etc, etc. Also makes it easier for pressing when working with several smaller units.

    When I did mine (click pic to see my blog post abut it):



    I actually cut long strips of fabric from a toddler bed sheet that my son no longer used. I used this sheet as a base for the strips. This allowed me to not worry about my strips going wonky as the strip got longer, I just cut all my pieces slightly longer than the sheet base and trimmed it to the size of my original sheet base at the end. It was so easy.

    Good luck!
