After the freezer paper templates are cut out I iron them onto the wrong side of the fabric. I then draw around each piece with my mechanical pencil and I also use a ruler and draw a 1/4 inch cutting line. It is an extra step to draw the cutting line, but I like that I end up with a fairly even seam that way. My freehand cutting skills are pretty poor.
The pieces all go back in the little plastic sandwich bags and are now ready for whenever I can get to stitching them together. There is the little strip of paper with the block name and number in the bag as well. At the time when I get the blocks ready to stitch I use the book and look up the block and see how the pieces go together. I use both the CD and the book to put the blocks together.
