Cutting into Scraps

I find that when I cut into scraps they muliply, they breed, they expand. Does this happen to you? I started with the plum tree, made a mug rug with some embroidery and am now moving on to a 9 patch quilt. Which leads me to my next question....... how do you 9 patch?

This is a stack I've made so far... but back to my question of how do you sew together your 9 patches? Do you chain piece them? Do you get up and iron each one? Do you seperate them in there own block pieces?

I seperate them by blocks, chain pieces 1-3 to pieces 4-6 and then sew 7-9, iron the three strips and sew them together. I would love to hear how you put your 9 patch blocks together.
