Red face Chain pieced squares

I was going through some notes and copies of instructions that were gathered in a pile with the intention of straightening my sewing room. I hope someone can help me discover where I might have gotten this information and what is the title. I had printed some pages, with pictures, but the directions are confusing. It relates to chain piecing squares, not cutting the threads, opening up each pair of squares and going from there. The pictures are in color. I looked through the tutorials, but could not find anything relating to the notes I have. Hope I am not too confusing and that someone on the board can be of help.

It sounds to me like some instructions from one of Eleanor Burns' Quilt in a Day books. That is also a way to put together a whole top of blocks or squares, by keeping the rows attached with the short threads. Then you just flip the first row ontop of the second, rst, and seam, and repeat all the way down the quilt for each row. That's hard to explain---hope that made sense.

I have used this method and it works really well. You put all your squares in a pile (this works really well with scrappy) and then you just start sewing the 2 pieces together until you sewed enough for the length. Then you clip the thread off the machine and go back to the first pair. Open that pair up and sew the next piece to the right side. When you keep sewing like that all of the rows are sewn together and they are connected to the next row by the threads.

I usually cut the rows apart at that point and press them in opposite directions so the seams nest when sewing the rowns together.

Yes, the Easy Intersections Tutorial is the information I was looking for. Originally, I had printed off just a few pages, thinking, I would remember the rest. Well, I did not. Thank you to all the board members. I knew someone would have the answer. You are all a great group of people.
