I think this is a great tool but don't realy understand how to use it. Can you take things back to why/when/how to use this. Maybe when not to use it?

Design boards are very helpful in order to keep all your fabric pieces together. For example if you are assembling a block, you can easily transport your fabric without the worry of it shifting. I would suggest only using it with small pieces, not like your entire quilt row. I hope this helps. Thanks for your question!
