    I use a large, cheap flannel back tablecloth from Walmart! I got this idea from a friend in a quilt guild. I lay everything out in the floor because I have natural light coming into my sewing room! It works very well!

    Hope this helps!

    anybody ever get those old screen projector thingamajigs that roll down when you used to watch the slides in school or the old maps that roll up. I have one upstairs that I think I might hang when I get everything going.

    I used the foam insulation board and covered it with felt. But after using it, I felt that the blocks didn't always stick to it very well. So I bought a cheap vinyl tablecloth and put it over the felt upside down. I think that works better than the felt did.

    I also bought the polystyrene (foam insulation board and wrapped it with flannel. it is a perfect design wall and as posted before, some blocks stick and when pieces get large, they fall and need pinning. The polystyrene board was only $10 for 4x8 feet sheet. I also cut it down to the size that works for me.

    I bought an inexpensive flannel backed plastic table cloth. It worked great but then one of my quilting buddies purchased a Fons and Porter design cloth. It is really nice. It has a 2 inch grid which makes it easier to know how large/small your quilt is working out to size. Since I am not a pattern lover, but rather a free spirit designer, I needed something/place to put my
    "creation" where I could stand back and look at it. The Fons and Porter cloth is expensive and works well, but the inexpensive flannel backed table cloth worked just as well.

    I went to my local JoAnns (back in NY) and purchased 2 yards of white felt (72 inches). Then I turned it down 2 1/2" and sewed a tube. Then I slid the design wall on the rod and hung it up. I keep it rolled up and out of the way when not in use. I have put a picture of it on the board.

    I use the plastic table clothes with the flannel in back I tacks at the very top (ceiling meets wall) and also 2 at the bottom - it works great - but I truly love the idea of the project board sometimes I need something smaller and this can be set up on my table thank you all
