Joining in sections not rows

I don't like joining quilt blocks or pieces in rows. I try to avoid long seams and normally only sew one seam from side to side of the quilt. Here I do this twice but only one seam is long. Normally I have to draw my seam pressing directions as I go but here the sequence was logical and self explanatory.

The stickers on the ninepatches denote the block placement and the stickers on the setting squares and triangles denote the right side of the fabric which has a self woven pattern rather like damask. I'm not sure if it is the right side but it means it is all the same side!
