    Do you sew 9 squares together, use 3 strips and cut 9 patch, or use another method? What is the best way to have every seam match up?

    I strip piece them. So much easier.

    I strip piece if I have/need a lot. I also piece them if I'm using up precut squares.

    If they're small I strip them. Larger than 4 inch. I sew them together.

    I strip piece unless I'm doing scrappy and then it's the old fashioned way of sewing squares together.

    I'm a stripper! I also use this method for a D9P.
