I have been sewing strips from jelly rolls together which in the past would have driven me insane until I realised my Pfaff sewing machine has this thing they call an Integrated Dual Feed System that works like a walking foot. It is perfect for patchwork as you can use your 1/4 inch foot at the same time. It is on the back of the sewing machine and you just clip it into the foot you are using (I've drawn an arrow to it in the picture below) and sew away. It ensures that the top and the bottom fabric are fed through at the same rate and there is no puckering or stretching of one fabric. I have it clipped in all the time when I am quilting now and has made a huge difference.
