A design wall for a quilter is like an easel for a painter. We use them to audition our blocks, help with design(s), and arrange the fabrics in a "pleasing manner." Before my friend Mary Nielsen moved to Florida and bequeathed me her "design boards" (AKA insulation board covered with flannel), I used the floor in the living room as my "design wall."
So I was thrilled yesterday when my bee came over and Karen Todd and Carrie Casto both used the boards to place their already made blocks on the wall and see their creations come to "life!" The birch trees are looking stellar!
