Catching Up

With vacations/family visits, car issues and my sewing machine catching on fire, (you heard me correctly, sewing machine catching on fire), I got a little behind with my Stars and Sprigs BOM. Three months to be exact. I was trying to figure out a way to keep all the pieces organized without buying something special and here is what I came up with:
Paper plates. Found in the back of the cabinet, I spared no expense. Each plate contains all the pieces for one block and was easy to carry to the ironing board. No worries about mixing up the pieces.

An hour of cutting time and afternoon of sewing, (while doing the laundry), I have caught up with all the star blocks.

If only the applique blocks were that easy........
