Block Layout

Block Layout

I cut a flannel backed plastic tablecloth into 18″ squares. As I cut pieces for blocks, I lay them out on the flannel side of the squares. I can stack the squares and roll the tack to take to my weekly quilt class or keep the stack by my sewing machine at home to keep my pieces in order.

  1. I use a fannel back table cloth for a design wall, I place it on the wall with tacks, flannel side out and put my blocks on it as I complete them so I can see my finished quilt before I sew blocks together.

  2. I love both these ideas. Individual blocks laid out to sew and the design board to place them on after they are sewn and move them around until you have what you like. Thank you, Annie and Wendy.

  3. I have two pieces of 1/4" plywood covered with a heavy batting. I keep my squares either in it or on the flannel sided plastic tablecloth on my wall. The tablecloth is a good way to organize is your project is no more than 45" square.
