When chain piecing, for leaders and enders I like to use scrappy units that I can assemble into scrap blocks for future projects. In doing so, however, I often mixed up the block design because I was so focused on the main project. Now I lay out all the pieces for several scrap blocks and put a piece of Press'n Seal on each one. To prevent creating mistakes in the overall design, after joining two pieces, I put them back in place under the Press'n Seal. This also makes it easy to transport the blocks.
