Step 3 - Sew Quilt Sandwiches

Sew an X on top of the quilt sandwich.
Start and stop the sewing lines about a half an inch in from the corner point. Do not try to chain piece* these squares, as the corners tend to get bunched up.
Fix the stitches when starting and stopping the sewing lines.

Tip: After a bit of practice you will probably be able to sew the line from corner to corner without marking the fabric. If this is hard at first, place a piece of masking tape from corner to corner as a guide.

*Chain piecing is sewing pairs of fabric together one after another without cutting the thread in between.
