Organizing Pieces for Sewing Blocks


Here’s a quick tip we want to share with you which will help organize all the cut pieces of fabric before sewing blocks. Ever thought of using paper plates? Put all the pieces you need for one block on a plate; place another plate on top and fill it with the pieces for the next block and so on.

Then when you have a few minutes to sew, you can sit down and complete one or more blocks quickly without having to search out the pieces you need. This method works especially well with scrap quilts when you wish to distribute your colours evenly.

The best part of this tip is that you don’t have any dirty dishes to wash after you’re done! Check out your local dollar store for inexpensive paper plates. Don’t need anything fancy, just regular paper plates that come already stacked in a package.
