Match the Seam Intersections
Pin together rows 1 and 2, matching seam intersections. You may need to ease the blocks a slight bit to ensure that the raw edges align. If one row is significantly shorter or longer, check your seam allowances to see if one is too narrow or too deep. If so, remove the seam and re-stitch before joining rows. Sew the rows together, backstitching at the beginning and end to secure the seam line and stabilize the quilt edge.
Continue joining rows in pairs (for example, join row 3 to row 4, row 5 to row 6, and so forth). Then sew together the joined rows.
TIP: If you’re having difficulty aligning seams when sewing rows together, try sewing with the seam allowances on top facing away from you as you guide the rows under the presser foot. This forces the top seam to butt up to the lower seam so the two automatically lock together.
