    I want to make a wall in my sew room that i can put up to layer/spray baste/etc king size quilts. I searched the board and it says using ceiling tiles. Ceiling tiles have holes all over them and I want to pin my backing fabric, spray, then batting, spray, then quilt top. I saw it on a video and it seems so much easier than putting it all on the floor, to which I dont have enough clear space on the floor to accomodate a king size.

    End result, what can I put on the wall, what will hold it and will it be removable when I am not using it? I dont mean a design wall, I mean a layer the quilt wall that will be strong enough to hold the layers while I put them together. I searched on here but got more info about basting and not enough about the construction of the wall. Any new ideas?

    how about the 1" thick insulation sheets? they're 4'X8" and could be put under a bed for storage, you may need to attach them to the wall some way to keep them from falling over with your sandwhich (that's what i have for design wall) the blue stuff is very dense and good for pinning into

    I did the same as kathy --- only I cut the 4'x8' down to 4' x 6' to accommodate my closet. (no room under our bed...LOL)

    I dont know what insulation sheets are. When I think of insulation, I think pink shreddy stuff. lol I will Google them. I will google them and thanks for your suggestion. Being able to put them under the bed is a great option!

    There is an insulation board that is a dense foam about 3/8"(?)thick. You can find it at Lowes, Home Depot or the like.

    I looked them up and I think they may work well. I just need a way to either keep them on the wall of at least steady while I am using it.

    There are different thickness of "rigid foam board", different manufacturers and therefore different colors. Some are pink some are blue. See "Extruded Polystyrene Foam" on this page http://www.homeconstructionimproveme...lation-values/

    Chances are you'll have to ask for it at those box stores and it may be outside for pick up/loading in your vehicle. Ask to go out and see it so you know what you're paying for first.

    I like those. I have a design wall in my spare bedroom, but when I have to lay all three pieces out, I take them to my niece house. She has a huge wall in closet and I lay it out on the closet floor for a day.
