Design Wall Monday

Monday rolls around again. And more has been done on the studio.  Today making and installing the design wall is my Design Wall post.  Here's what happened... 
This is a light weight insulating board.  I hope it holds up to a few pins too.  The flannel had to be ironed a bit. 
I used a staple gun to adhere the flannel to the panel.  By the way, we had these cut at Lowe's so we wouldn't have to do it. 
One covered, on to the next.
Pat installing the first board, the second is ready to go. 

Both panels installed and in action. 
You might notice there is another design wall behind the ironing board.  That is one we moved from the previous studio.  I should be able to get most of my quilts on the big design wall.  I don't make huge quilts all the time.  I still like those black, white and bright blocks! 

I wasn't very successful on the weekly goals.  But I did read two or three books this week.  (Which might explain the goals being left undone.)

  1. Studio looks great and something on the design wall already. I agree those black, white and bright blocks are wonderful. I have the same insulation board for my design wall and pins are not a problem, been up for almost 3 years now and still holds those pins like a charm!!

  2. I need to redo my design wall, too, and will look for this insulation board. Right now I have a "design sheet." :D And what would we do without our lists??

  3. My sister did the same thing in her sewing room. I enjoy sewing with her there because I can put my blocks on the wall. I use the floor at my house.

  4. What a great design wall...I am jealous!
