Spiral-Bound Solution

Many times the quilt pattern I want to make is found in a bound, soft-cover book, making it difficult to keep the pages open. To solve this problem, I take the book to the local copy center and have it spiral-bound. The cost is minimal, and as a result I can easily turn pages, fold back the cover, and follow quilting steps without destroying the book.
