    My first ever design wall!

    I have always wanted a design wall but did not have room in our old house for one. So......we moved to another town last August to a new house and I have a designated sewing room now. Yay! Today my dear husband built my design wall and installed it. I immediately put up some blocks so he could see how handy it will be. LOL

    I actually agree!!! I was amazed at how much easier it is to arrange blocks (and see my mistakes before I sewed the blocks together!)

    Have fun. I couldn't live without mine. So much to play with blocks on them.

    Yes, my hubby is a keeper for sure and he did a great job. Can't wait to really get into using the board. I have so many blocks packed away that have never been sewn into a top and now I can more easily see how I want the blocks arranged.

    You will love it!!! I finally caved and made my own when trying to put together a stack and whack. Made it soooo much easier and I have never looked back or regretted my decision.

    I wish I had a regular place for a design wall. I do have a rod up that I hang a heavy sheet from when I have to use one. But, it is not the same as a stiff one and harder to use.

    Lucky you to have one all the time. It makes all the difference in the world on certain quilts. It is like a dressmakers form. A must have.

    It looks great and you will love it! I just have the Fons and Porter portable design wall hanging in my area and even that is a huge help. I can't imagine working without a design wall now!
