    I have a large piece, what ever the standard size of sturdy insulation. I has a shiny covering on all sides. It was then covered with flannel which was pulled tight and taped down with good old duc tape. The pannel is at least ten years old and has never failed me.

    I would consider standing a second beside it if I had the room to lay our multiple quilts or one double size quilt top.

    3m hook and tape might be one method that way they would be removeable with damage to your wall....i use a picnic table cloth with a flannel backing that way i can take it down and put it away when not in use...which is not very often

    Mona202- If you don't want to mount the foam boards permanently on your wall why don't you get the heavy duty velcro made by 3M and use that ? It comes in black and white and if you get the color closest to your wall and put them way up high by the ceiling you can leave that half up and the other half (the sticky one) stays on the board. No one would notice the part left on the wall. Take the board down and store it when finished using it. It will be ready to stick up when you are ready again.

I can clamp a piece of insulation board into this and sandwich my quilts. I have even clamped the quilts in themselves and sandwiched the quilts.
    This sounds interesting, and not too expensive. Worth giving a try, do you have a pic you could post?

    I use a regular paper stapler to staple mine to a large wall in my bedroom. I keep that wall free of anything else just for basting quilts even though I only make 3 or 4 a year. When I'm done and pull all the staples out you can't tell they were there. they also don't damage the fabric. I love the idea of using insulation. I could use that area for something else then.

    Any suggestions?
    How about cheap plastic you buy at the hardware store?

    For my design wall, my Hubby bought two sheets (4X8) of foam insulation, covered them with batting, and used liquid nails to put them up.
