    I've finally moved into my own little quilting shed! It's been quite a journey from start to finish, but well worth it. For any who didn't watch the progress: http://www.quiltingboard.com/t-103882-1.htm

    Here are pictures of the finished area. Parts are not too neat, but I'm already working in it! I hung the batting on the wall using garden hose hangers from Lowes that were about $5 and a piece of electrical conduit that I already had. I folded fabric using the ruler method. I really happy with it and already enjoy spending time there!

    hey..if you hung that batting with the batting coming off the roll the other way you could use it as a design wall too!

    LOVE the idea of a the hangars and conduit for the batting. My roll is still in the shipping box.
    Last statement is most important - that you enjoy spending time there!
    Congrats!

    I wait until I get a JoAnn 50% off coupon and the roll batting isn't on sale. I've forgotton what I paid, but it seems like it was $150 or so. This is 90" X 30 yds.

    I use my 6 X 24 ruler. I lay the fabric out length-wise, still folded in the middle on my cutting board. I line the folded edge up with a line on my cutting board, then place the ruler across it and start folding, keeping the folded edge straight. When finished, fold it over once and it fits on a bookcase shelf just right. Here's a couple pics of me folding.

    Looks like fun, doesn't it?

    I thought about that after we hung it.. and may turn it around. However, I'm looking for a folding room divider that I can cover. I think reaching over that ironing board would be difficult if I had many pieces to hang. As you can see, I'm not the slimest or tallest person, LOL! As it is, I could pull it out over the ironing board and use it that way if I don't find anything soon.
