    Hi,
    I purchased the fons and porter design wall at JoAann's with my 50% off coupon, it was only $12.00 and already has grommets at the top, so was easy to hang on the command hooks and it does hold a quilt top.

    I use Office stick/push pins and old sewing machine needles, so far they have held up two flannel backed tablecloths that I sewed together; floor to ceiling and almost wall to wall. My wall can hold a queen size quilt and stay up. Total cost around $6.00.

    Excellent idea! Why didn't I think of that when I was using a piece of batting? It held the blocks but not joined pieces.

    quiltsRfun, you're brilliant.

    My son-in-law put up a decorative curtain rod over a double closet door....put weights on the end of the heavy flannel wool fabric..works great and when I don't want it roll it up and tie with ribbon ..out of the way ..works great...and cheap to do..

    The Command Hooks are the solution if the walls are fairly smooth. I use them to hold design walls up at retreats. At home, however, my walls are textured, and don't stay up as well.

    If your wall allows it you could put some sort of hook to hang skirt hangers that clip the flannel, but are still temporary
    You know that feeling when you've finished all your quilting projects and your studio is perfectly clean????

    Me neither.

    I use thumb tacks and a flannel tablecloth as well. Since its my quilt room my husband is okay with it. I've hung a queen size quilt on my wall. My walls are in my little quilt room are made of gyprock.

    But I like the idea of the 3 m hooks. If you go this route let us know how it works okay. My quilt room is in Newfoundland, Canada and I'm a snowbird in Phoenix Arizona for the winter.
