A handy tip: often when we have a block with a number of pieces, it can be hard keeping them all in order. This is especially true if you don't have a design wall or a separate area of the house for a studio. Lay the pieces on a towel. They will stay in place. If you have to pack up before finishing, just roll up the towel. If your pattern consists of a number of different blocks, use more than one towel.
