Buy a scrapbook and the clear pocket sheets.     Place pieces and pattern for block on one side and on other side the background fabric block and the work in progress as you sew on your pieces.    Use extra pocket for your pattern of complete quilt of the book in which you found the pattern.    Books come in 12" x 12" and hold extra pages as you need.

@ Sandy .... Can you show us some pics of the how-to? We don't always have the same things in our shops here, but if I can visualise it, I can substitute some of the elements. Please and Thanks!

Liefdegroete,

calano, i use a 3 ring school binder with the clear plastic pages.  it isn't as big, but works the same.

Thanks Gini, I have only recently started with applique, so, still trying to figure out how to keep everything together neatly. The 3-ring binder I can most certainly do! Thanks again!

Liefdegroete,

calano,   i've made a "book" out of flannel, that is  twelve inches square.    it has six pages.    when it is laying open, one side is flannel and the other side is plain cotton.   i use it as a flannel board to hold my applique pieces in place  after they are cut out.   i roll it up and tie it with a ribbon to keep the pieces from shifting.

@ Gini --- I am actually surprised to get answers so quickly! Aren't you suppose to be asleep? It is almost 9 o'clock here ... must be past midnight by you! I can see how the felt keeps the little pieces together ... I think I will incorporate this with the 3-ring binder ... I've been feeling like a klutz not knowing how to keep all those little bits from getting lost.! Thanks for great advice!

Liefdegroete,
