    I just take one row at a time off my design wall, press and square up blocks and then look again at my picture of the completed quilt to be sure I'm putting the pairs of blocks together in the right orientation of each block. And once I've stitched a row together I put the completed row back up on the design wall before taking down the next row.

    Works for me...

    I used some small plastic squares and write row 1 block 1 etc and pin them on. Use them over and over since most quilts have rows and blocks. Bought them at a lqs - really have used them a lot.

    I was the person who posted that. Of course I can't remember where I found them but I saved the file on my 'puter so if you'd like them (they work like a charm!), just PM me & I'll shoot'em your way!

    The heavy duty roll of masking tape is good for labels and for holding the backing in place when pining for quilting.
    It is heavier than regular masking tape but still tears easy.

    I've been doing it this way for years. If I have a graph paper sketch of my block layout I number it too just for reference, but usually I just number the first row A1, A2, A3, etc. and the next row starts B1 and so forth. I use garage sale stickers that are a couple of dollars for 500 or so at WalMart. I also have a set of binder clips that are numbered 1-100 from some project years ago that I use occasionally too.....
    Mistakes are just opportunities to invent a new quilting technique!

    I found this site. It has the rows and blocks printed out and suggests you laminate them or put them on cardstock and punch a hole in the corner. I'm going to try it.
