Loyal Union Sampler Block B-5 Chambersburg

Chambersburg is pieced per the directions on page 23 OR Paper Pieced OR Pieced using the “connector method” – both options featured in the Supplemental Packet offered at Patched Works.

Mary says:  I chose to piece this block using the connector method. I marked all the 1-1/2” Squares with a diagonal line using the Quick Quarter II tool. After sewing the 1-1/2” square to the 2-1/2” square, trim off the middle and back layer. When I made my block I only trimmed the middle layer and boy was I sorry! Way too much bulk in these relatively small blocks. I also found that shortening my stitch length helped me to more accurately sew these smaller pieces.
