Nothing worse than having 8" blocks with 64 tiny pieces "fray" apart from handling before being sewn into a quilt top! I prevented this by cutting a 9" sq. of cardboard and using 2 - 3 binder clips to hold it in place. I can play around with arrangements without getting fabric threads all over the place and the tiniest pieces keep their 1/4" seam. This could work with any size block using poster board or cardboard.
