    I made my own, no grid but it does the trick. Just got it up. Finishing up a quilt then I'll put it to good use. The tape is gone now. Just couldn't wait to try it out and snap a pic. I'm also rearranging my sewing room I'll post pics at a later date.

    There's other possibilities and they don't have to be permanent ... just a few to start ... cover over your closet doors? back of the door into the room? temporarily tape it up with painter's tape on a hall wall? or any other wall in your home?

    I used flannelette for my first one that I taped up and then tried polar fleece, which is what I used when I went permanent.

    Thanks for looking
    You are lucky to have a DH that can do things like that for you. What is your backing made out of?
    Be the best that you can be at everything you do.

    My backing is made of the lighter weight Pellon fleece. The grid shows through.
