    I do think that having it stapled down taut makes the blocks stay up better.

    thanks for that opinion. i would like for it to work that way so it doesn't flap around in the moving air in the basement.

    QUESTION FOR EVERYONE: WHAT 'S THE BEST COLOR? I' M THINKING WHITE OR BLACK.

    my wall is white now, but it doesn't have to be if you think black is better. opinions please.

    I would go with white. I love the idea of a flannel sheet. I'm going to try that.

    Mine is off white and all colors show up on it. If you used black, I would think you would have strings and fuzz that would show up when trying to look at blocks!

    And I knew you were just teasing!!!

    Cause your our BW!

    One of my favorite local quilt shops has a huge piece of Warm and Natural batting stapled up on one wall. It has been there several years and the blocks still stick to it easily.

    I've got natural unbleached flannel stapled tight over a wooden framework. Blocks stay put BUT any that are up there longterm (only BOMs BW - don't start nagging!) are held with a couple of pins. They fall off when I start fiddling about a lot with placements on there, for eg with OBWs. I think the space behind is the problem - I might get Hans to put some insulation material behind it when he's got a minute! LOL
