Design Wall

In our new home, my sewing studio is in a spare bedroom.  I got it all set up and had a space right beside my sewing table for add a design wall.  It took me a while to figure out how I wanted to make my design wall but I figured it out.

What I did was I used yard sticks from Home Depot. I had measured my space and figured out how many yard sticks that I would need.  I used 1 1/2 yard sticks at the top and bottom and 2 on each side.  (I had to cut one yard stick in half to get 1/2 sticks. Mark cut it using some kind of power saw :) Then, I used Warm and Natural batting and cut it to the size of the yard sticks plus 2 inches.  Starting at the top, I nailed the yard sticks in by sandwiching the batting between the wall and the yard stick.  I then worked on the left side, smoothed out the batting and working from the top, did the right side.  Finally, the bottom was done last.  I love it because it has the inch measurements on the yard sticks and I know approximately how big my quilt is.   

Here are some pictures of the results:

Tillie approves!
I'm really happy with it and use it all the time.  Of course, now it's full of threads!

Thanks for stopping by!
