    My Wall is a foam core board you buy at home depot for about $6 it is about 4x5, then we cover it with white batting, it is really light. It looks great and you can pin to it as well as you pieces will just stick. I actually have two. We attached them to the wall with the 3M hangers that do not make holes in the wall.

    My wall is a frame made from timber, I think about 1" x 1" with cross pieces on the corners to strengthen it. I stretched flannel over the frame and staple gunned to the back. It hangs up on the wall on two L shaped hooks. Blocks and smaller pieces stick to it great with no help and because there's a small void behind it, I can pin through it if I want to hang something heavy like a top. My sewing room is so small, I also use it to hold FQs for the current project - just toss them up there, keeps them nice and flat and out of the way! :-D

    May I ask a question?

    The quilt you have on the frame in the picture. Where did you get the asian lady fabric. It is gorgeous.

    I bought the Asian lady as a panel/kit at a quilt show. The quilt is put together using the book Nine Patch Pizzaz.

    I made my own design wall. I went to Home Depot and purchased 2 4'x8' sheets of the insulation board with shiny back. I covered the front of each board with batting and secured with duct tape all around the back. placed the two boards side by side on my wall and anchored them with deck screws. I now have a design wall that covers 8' by 8'. I love it!

    My husband purchased 4 pieces of plastic plumbing pipe & 4 elbows & pieced them together. I bought wide width flannel & made sleeves on all 4 sides & slid the pipe into them. I lean it up against the wall when I need to use it. Total cost around $20. I don't have a wall where I wanted it tacked up permanently & this is easy to take down when we have company.

    well I did something different! I don't have a wall I use so I put up a design curtain. Dh did end up putting me up a rod and I made this blanket into a sliding curtain. Since it gets moved I do pin my blocks to it but it is working great! I don't have a pic of the rod but here it is while it was tacked up.
