When trying to design your next quilt and you need an easy way to find the color coordinating fabrics you want to use just go to the paint department and grab some color samples their free. That's what I do. Maybe it will help you too.
I don't know about you but once I have finished with all my blocks and have them in the order I want them in on my quilt wall, I have a heck of a time keeping them in that order when I need to sew. So instead of the little round labels or post-its that everyone else likes to use I use the photo/scrapbook...
When sewing many small pieces together, instead of running back and forth to iron your seam, use something hard like a bone folder to crease or "iron" the edge. This saves time and is especially useful when you are making pieced blocks, unless of course you prefer the exercise!
