    You probably already know this but I found a way to display my blocks that makes it easy for me. My daughter-in- law had a tall poster of Trace Atkins that she got from the dollar store, which was a tri-fold. She decided to get rid of it and asked if I had a use for it. I bought it home, stopping by the dollar store and bought a rectangular picnic table clothe. I covered the card board with it with the wrong side out using staples. When I've finished a block I can put it on the board because it sticks to the lining without pins or any thing else. In this way I can lay out several rows, and determine how you want to put them together.

    Sounds like an excellent and frugal way to make a design wall! Flannel tablecloths are great for that. Thank you!

    The flannel tablecloth is also great for taking to retreats.

    Oh yeah, Trace is still very visible. Yes, I think you could use those picnic table cloth holders. If you decide you need a table cloth and don't have another one ,you could use this one and then just replace it.
