How To Patchwork Using A Coaster: Part Two

NB: this is part two of how to patchwork using a coaster. Find the first post here.

Before beginning your patchwork squares must be joined into rows and laid out in position as shown below.

1. Pick up two of the adjacent rows and place them right side together. Hold them to that the seams match up and pin them in place.

2. To make sure the fabric doesn't slip add extra pins lower down the fabric as shown by the turquoise pin below.

3. Sew the two pieces of fabric together, with right sides facing, leaving approximately 1cm of seam allowance.

4. Remember that coaster? Lift it up and line it up with the seam you have just stitched.  Use tailor's chalk to draw a line parallel to the seam that you've just stitched. 

5. Repeat steps 1-4 ensuring that the pieces are sewn together along the tailor's chalk lines. Repeat until all the rows are sewn together and press the seams.

Stand back. Enjoy your handiwork!  How clever are you?
