Tips: When assembling the blocks for a quilt top, number the rows from top to bottom and pin a scrap of paper with the number to the left-hand block in each row. When finished piecing all the blocks in a row, press the seam allowances in one direction and place a straight pin in the left-hand block, pointing in the direction of the seams. Press the seams of the next row in the opposite direction.
