    My sister gave me this block tool and I only used it once or twice because the cards were very awkward to read. The plastic peg in the lower right hand corner of the cards kept them stacked in a numerical order, but the cards had to be fanned out to read.

    I have been going up the walls trying to figure out how to get this thing bound and finally I called Office Max and I got it spiral bound today. OMG, what a difference this makes. Now it will lay flat and I can refer to any of the cards with ease.

    I'm sure some of you may have the same tool. Get it spiral bound and you will use it more often. Here are some pics of the cards.

    In my opinion, all quilt books, cook books and piano should be spiral bound. What good is a reference book that keeps closing when you use it?

    Was it expensive to have it done?

    I finally had to put a heavy piece of glass on the open book so it would stay open. For cook books that is good, the glass cleans up easier than paper, but for sewing it is not a good solution.

    I didn't know that you could get an already published book spiral bound. Sounds nice.

    I do that with all my quilt books so I can see them while using them to sew. I think I pay around $4 a binding. Sometimes I put several books from the same publisher in one binding with clear sheets between the books. I go to what used to be Kinkos but is now Fed Ex Shops or something like that.
