I have quilted for many years but have never had a design wall to work on and didn't appreciate how valuable they are as they help heaps when you are trying to put a design together. Thankfully I currently have a nice big wall in my sewing room that is perfect for a design wall so I went off to the Art Store and purchased some Polystyrene panels and some double sided mount tape and set about putting a wall together.
I purchased 8 large Polystyrene panels, some mounting tape and double sided tape
I put mount tape on the corners of the polystyrene boards.
Then I covered the wall with the boards by sticking them to the wall.
The wall soon became covered with the boards.
Next was to cover the board with 100% Cotton Batting as this sticks to the polystyrene boards.
The cotton batting sticks to the double sided tape on the top of the boards.
I needed to join the cotton batting so did that with the double sided tape so that I had enough batting to cover the wall.
The sides are secured with pins into the sides of the polystyrene board.
Now I have a completed design wall to work on and the cotton fabric sticks to the cotton batting.
The wall has inspired me to pull out a UFO from the cupboard that I am encouraged to finish!
