The Futurama Quilt--Pinning the blocks

For quilting, I try to take as many shortcuts as possible. I will pin together an entire row instead of two items at a time. I will chain items together instead of stopping to cut the thread in between small pieced items.

For this quilt, I pinned all the rows that had character faces together. I then pinned together the small sash rows that do not have characters.




From here, I find sewing to be rather quick. I am getting better about trimming all threads BEFORE I press so that I don't forget. With the thinner white fabric I purchased, this is really important to do.

Next up will be to pin and sew the rows together for the finished quilt top!
