While looking for a way to keep my growing collection of 6-1⁄2-inch-square blocks organized, I came across a long 24-inch-wide piece of flannel. Now I lay each block on the flannel and roll the flannel around a cardboard mailing tube. When I want to audition fabrics for new blocks, I can quickly unroll the completed blocks and just as quickly roll them back up again.
