    This is the design wall I made by hinging four hollow core closet doors together and spraying them with adhesive and covering them with flannel. Perfect for a queen quilt and folds up for easy storage.

    Great idea for sturdy when you use them--and yet easy to store. Good Job!

    This is such a good idea especially if you don't have the wall space available to dedicate to a design wall. Great idea that I will certainly use if/when I ever need it. Thanks.

    What a great idea, having a small space folded up until needed would work well for me. Thanks for sharing

    you are welcome everyone, glad this comes in handy for someone. I have also cut a hollow core door down and covered it with batting and fabric and now have a ironing surface that takes more than a full width of fabric. Happy quilting everyone.

    Very smart and if it stands on it's own you could use it as a room divider!
