Design Boards + keeping Funky Pinwheel blocks organized!

The most common question I receive in regards to my Funky Pinwheel Templates and Block; "How do you keep the pinwheels organized while sewing?"

Design Boards!

Quilting Design Boards

Super Simple and FUN to make! Foam Core, Batting, Fabric and a Glue Gun are the tools and supplies you need to make them...

Basically they allow you to lay the pieces of your block down with out slipping and sliding around, and carry them from cutting board to sewing machine without getting them mixed up!

Never get a block pieced together wrong - again.
My friend Lori gives IN-DEPTH INSTRUCTIONS over at her blog on how to make them and use them. I think there are 3 posts about them. You can go HERE to read more about them. 

Try them. I know you will LOVE them!

These are my "Mini Design Boards". I also have a full size board ( 20" x 30" ) That I use a lot.

I saw Lori's tutorial about those adorable design boards. I think I need to get serious and make one. It IS on my to-do list.

I need to make some of those. Somebody at my LQS made some & used some of the cute decorative duct tape around the edges, easy peasy! I love your fabric ones though...

These little design boards are just too cute! How handy can Lori be? She is just the best designer. I would love to have even one of these design boards.
Thanks so much!

Oh yes! I checked our mailbox today, but my crazy pinwheel template order wasn't there... sigh. But maybe tomorrow!

Thanks for the great post. Love the idea of a small, carry-around design board.
