As I surf around blogland on Monday mornings, I always see bloggers talking about Design Wall Monday. Well, up until this past weekend, I just had a piece of foam core board that I'd bought at Hobby Lobby to use for a design wall. It was 4' X 6', and I couldn't use the bottom corner because I had to really bend it to fit it into my car. That board would hold a few blocks but not enough that I could arrange them into a larger sized quilt. For a long time I have had Design Wall Envy. I first saw this idea for a design wall over on Susan's blog, The Thread and I. Then I went to a friend's house, and she had used the same concept except that her husband had nailed her design wall to the wall using boards. So I asked Bill if he might fix a design wall in my sewing room. His first question was, "Which wall?" So I began moving and shifting things, and here it is......tah dah!!!! a blank wall.
I bought 6 yards of a tan flannel at JoAnns with my coupon and pieced it down the center into one large piece.
When you turn from the design wall and look out the window, this is the view from my sewing room window.
