    Default Re: horizontal or vertical rows?

    I sew the second block in a row to the first, but chain stitch so in essence my rows are hooked together in columns. I add the next in the row, but all of the rows at once, chain stitching as I go. That way everything is hooked together for sewing the width. I find it to be easier that way. Hope all that makes sense.

    Vertical. Saves time because it's chain piecing.

    I am in the horizontal group. But really I do not understand why it would matter.

    The sashed tumbler blocks we did worked best in vertical rows.

    I do horizontal rows first because they are
    usually shorter than the vertical rows.😊

    Sometimes one way and sometimes the other. Sometimes I make blocks into bigger blocks and proceed from there. Since my design wall is wider than it is long so the quilts are put up there sideways so then it is confusing which way is horizontal and which is vertical.
