I used covered foam boards with those Commando strips to hold it to the wall, too. Absolutely Love it!

You will be amazed how much you will use it. Nicely done with the extra insulation, too!

That is terrific! What a wonderful plan you have cooked up. I have an old bureau that Jim secured a board to. We put tea cup hooks every nine inches and I put clips on each one. It's about 72 inches long. I put a nice big piece of batting on that and .... oh boy! Your set up looks wonderful. Have fun.

What a wonderful idea!

I may have to see if dh is willing to do up a wall for me.
I can see how it would be very useful.

Congrats on the wall. I have something on mine at all times.

Minus 39!!! Say it isn't so. We are on the southern edge of Storm Mateo and up to 5 inches of snow already, and it's still coming down....very gently, but still coming down.

My disaster feed said that there were 231 deaths in San Diego of the flu. Scary indeed.

My design wall is not as nice as yours, but it works! My mom gives me her plastic table clothes when she's done with them and I just pin them up to my wall with the underside facing out. They've got some kind of batting on the backs of them and they hold my quilt pieces perfectly until i'm ready to sew them all together! She usually buys them at walmarts for each season, so they're cheap for her and then I reuse them until the batting no longer holds and then I hang a "new" one!
