    I use them on my quilt magazines like tabs to mark a quilt pattern that I hope to make some day. It is easy to spot the tabs.

    Great idea, I also use them in my quilting books, when they are lent out, they are more likely to come back with your name in them.

    Good idea. I keep a bunch in my purse and use them whenever someone talks me into buying raffle tickets for whatever.

    It was in the Fons & Porter book 'Quilters complete guide' Great book from the library. This link has a similar one to mine, the difference is that I used 4" squares for all the cuts and they use different sizes.
