    Hinged design wall

    I have a design wall in my quilt room, but never seemed to have enough room to put up all of the projects I am working on at any given time. I was constantly having to take down the quilt blocks of one quilt to put up another.

    I wanted a second design wall, but did not have any more wall space, so a hinged design wall was the solution. My husband brain-stormed the project and did a great job for me.

    What a cool idea! those husbands do seem to come in handy! It always amazes me at how much they support our hobby/addiction and how willing they are to help out when it comes to these kinds of things

    NOW thats Just GREAT!! And I bet With a Little more 'brain storming' It could Even Split the Panel's So that each one 1st folded in 1/2 before you flip it to go the wall for a room that may be smaller?

    Thanks for sharing! I have got to get my husband working on a smaller version of one. I went to your blog and it's very easy to understand your directions. Thanks again!

    wonderful wall.. I don't have enough room to swing one out like that. Mine is a sheet of insulation board cut in half and hinged with duct tape so I can have a narrow one or open it for when I need wider. Not real pretty but it works for me.
