Welcome to the Quilting Board!
Mistakes are just opportunities to invent a new quilting technique!
I tear up paper and pin to rows in left upper corner. #'s on the pins is a great idea. thanks for the tip.
Asking a seamstress to mend is like asking Picasso to paint your garage.
I purchased a sheet of template material from JoAnn's (40% coupon) and cut it into 1" squares. I then used a hole punch to put one hole in the middle of each square. I took a Sharpie pen and wrote row/block numbers on each one -- 1-1, 1-2, 1-3, etc. I use a straight pin to pin each square to the upper left corner of the blocks - I store each group of ten on a safety pin so they don't get too mixed up. In a pinch, I have cut paper squares to use in the same way.
I had another one that I just used little scraps of paper--cut them into little squares, wrote on them, 1-15 and pinned them to the top left side of the block and then threw them away at the end of the project. But I've thought it would be neat to have something a little more permanent.[/QUOTE]
Why did you throw the papers away. I have at least three sets of papers that are numbered and held together with a binder clip. The sets go in the box with the clamps, bolts and c-clamps that I need for my quilt frames. I've been using the same paper number squares for the last 30 years. But I only do 4 or 5 quilts a year. They still work.
