The pattern I am using requires twenty 10-inch squares. Moda layer cakes have 42 squares, some of which are duplicates or light colorways that wouldn't provide enough contrast with my background. I carefully pulled out the 20 squares that would work and stored them with the background and pattern.
The remaining 22 squares I folded inside the card that describes how to cut a layer cake and attached a large black clip to hold them all together.
They are lost.
Now, tell me, how could I lose anything here?
I'm sure they will float to the top of the heap at some point. Meanwhile, the 20 I plan to use are on top of that pile of blue boxes on the floor.
Someday I'll get organized. But I'd rather be sewing!
