    This looked crazy but it worked! It used straight pins to tack the quilt onto the HALL WALL!!! LOL, I usually just use the guest bed but this was too big. My DIL picked out the pattern & focus fabric...I am not crazy about it but I sure hope she loves it.

    I use a vinyl tablecloth. The stuff that is on the back of them is perfect for quilt squares.They stick right to them.

    love the quilt pattern... i use flannel tacked up to a wall -- the cotton sticks to it nicely.

    So far, since I'm just doing small sizes, I've not had to have a design wall, but the tablecloth is probably the way I would go. I also have used my cardbord cutting pad in the past with upholstery tacks. That worked also. Another idea for the cutting pad that worked great for me, when sandwiching a crip quilt, was to lay the pad on the bed and use those alligator clips to hold the edges of the batting, backing and top tight while I pinned.

    Thanks for the kind words! I have used my cardboard cutting thing covered with a flannel sheet as a design wall...it works well for small areas. I needed to see the entire quilt to match circles though. Some day after we move I will have a huge design wall that I can stand back & look at. Until then we just make due, right?
