    I have a flannel backed tablecloth attached with double sided tape to a sliding wardrobe door. It works for me
    The biggest risk is the one not taken

    2 yards of cream colored fleece attached to the wall with Velcro so it can be removed.

    I have the Fons and Porter design and I thing it was about 17 dollars. It HAS GROMENTS at the top so I weht and got the 3m velcro stick up with hooks on them and they hold it up on the wall in my sewing room just fine.

    Asking a seamstress to mend is like asking Picasso to paint your garage.

    There are several ideas on the QB if you want to do a search.

    Questions are:
    - do you want it permanent or portable?
    - what size do you want?
    - how pretty do you want it to be?

    I've used a flannel backed tablecloth in the past but found I had to pin the blocks on it and preferred it for taking projects to a sew-in instead of at home.

    I had a friend help me and we made a 8 ft x 8 ft design wall out of 2 4ft x 8 ft pieces of foam insulation duct taped hinged together so I could fold it and store it behind a very tall bookcase. We covered it in batting and then later I gridded it with ribbon. I love it.

    Another quilting friend has her design wall mounted onto her wall permanently.

    I would expect the space available would determine what decided to do.
    Have fun quilting! If it isn't fun, you will miss a lot.

    I use a king size flannel sheet. I can use it on a table, the bed, or hang it from the curtains.
