I have been wanting a design wall for a long time! I bought a foam board that is 1 1/2 inches thick and eight foot by four foot. At first I was going to put it in front of my closet doors but then decided to put it on the wall instead. It stays as long as my treadle is pushed up against it, we put double sided wall tabs on it, but I am going to have to pull the treadle out when I start quilting. Since it is foam, nails won't work, any suggestions on how to hang it? It does not go to the floor because I wanted to make two boards and the vent is there.
I spray "basted" the batting on the foam board. I wanted to use flannel, but I had this cheap batting that is super thin, so I used it.
I taped the back with duct tape to make sure it stays on.
BTW - This morning in Bible class with my student, we were talking about not being lazy and finding things to keep yourself busy and out of trouble. I told her that hobbies are good for that and quilting keeps me busy so that I am not tempted to be lazy and gossip. I also have my church activities, Homemaker's group, Quilt Guild, Ladies Bible Study. All of these things keep me busy.
