    I have been working on a D9P quilt today, and was getting frustrated that my intersections were not consistently lined up, even after careful cutting, lining and pinning. :evil:

    SOOO after a few trials and errors, I found a way that makes it easy!! I am sure that some of our more experienced quilters will have already worked this out, but for all the newbies out there..... it works, give it a try!!

    I hope the file opens for you all, if not can someone please compress it further if possible Oh Patrice....... :roll: :lol: :D

    Thanks so much! I struggle with getting exact intersections. I've never seen this chain stitching technique explained. I'm going to give it a try!

    I always chain stitch so butt the seams together will not be a problem, thank you.

    I hope I explained it simply enough so all our beginners can understand it, the tighter you can butt up the less joining thread there is between each section so less room for slippage while you sew it :wink:

    Denise, I wish I had discovered this two years ago when I started out, as it really helps line them up and another plus is you have no chance of seams undoing at the edge due to not cutting the threads :wink:

    Each sub square was cut at 4" as I already had some cut, so finished 9 patch 10.5, but I will be cutting them up then resewing into D9P :wink: :D
