Question from Youtube

Still a little new to quilting and enjoy it already! One thing I noticed is that you didn’t back stitch when starting to join a new row. Is it necessary? Thanks, I know this is probably a simple question.



Nope the backwards and forwards and fixing stuff isn’t necesary as you will be sewing across at rightangles at some future point (and at the time of sewing you don’t know where you will be cutting).  Make sure the stitch length isn’t too long though – 2.2 or 2.4 is perfect for strip piecing (and piecing in general).
