    i'm about to start a square quilt with squares only and the directions say when cutting out several pieces and sewing straight through going from one piece to another with little space between....does the thread unravel since it's not tied off when you cut between the pieces.

    it is called "chain piecing"..and yes, it will be ok!
    google it, and you will come up with examples and probably even a video on utube!

    good morning and welcome from Michigan!

    Welcome from southeast PA!

    When you stiche the 1/4" seams you don't need to secure the 1st & last stitches as they will be secured later within the seam when you sew your rows together.
