    Do a search above for design wall. There is a LOT of information already on the board. Some attached to the wall, some movable.
    There are so many options! Good luck.
    I don't have room for one - wish I did.

    What do you use to keep your quilt pieces on the design wall so they don't fall off?

    If the design wall is covered with flannel or batting the
    pieces/blocks should just stick :)

    Sometimes I throw a few pins in the blocks if I have a fan going, but other wise, they stick really well to the cotton batting I am using. :D:D:D

    I used felt to cover my design boards I have 2 = 3'x 5', I could never remember felt or flennal. Well it works I prop my board against the wall, place my squares on the board press the top of the blk gently. It stayes put days for a long time.

    One my new design wall (see this post
    http://www.quiltingboard.com/t-44711-1.htm) I used Warm and Natural batting. It acts like velcro and no pins are needed.

    If the design wall is covered with flannel they should just stay.

    Just toss a cheap vinyl tablecloth over your drapery rod and the blocks stick like magic to the back of the tablecloth.

    Of course, your house probably looks pretty tacky from the outside, but it will work for a bit in a pinch.
