    We finally got my design wall up today. Now my studio is complete!
    Here is what we did... I bought two 4'x8' x1/2" pieces of insulation. Lowes has a wonderful spray adhesive, (similar to what you find in the quilt stores) and two 90x108 of Warm and Natural batting. We sprayed the insulation and one side of the batt and placed the batting on. Made sure to do this outside because of the fumes. To hang on the wall, we used corner round molding and attached with screws. It really framed it nicely. In the middle, we placed a few Command strips on the back of the board and the wall so the board wouldn't pull away from the wall. I love it!!!
    Maybe now some of those UFO's will get finished.

    Somehow this Kaleidoscope needs to turn into a queen size quilt. Maybe if I stare at it long enough it will happen!
