To organize units for strip piecing, I arrange them on 8-1/2×11" foam sheets (found at crafts stores). The fabric does not slide on the foam, and you can stack the sheets easily in a tote bag when you're taking your project to a class or a retreat. This method is also great for storing and transporting appliqué shapes.
