...I'm feeling creative. I've done a few "quilted" items, but no quilt. I got "charmed" into some Christmas charm packs and decided I wanted to create a winter scene wall hanging (ambitious aren't I, considering I've only finished 3 garments this year!) Figured a design wall would be useful, but I didn't want it big and I didn't want to lay out money, s so I made my own. I had a portable drafting table (?) from my undergraduate days and some red flannel from I don't know where. Tried to Velcro it on, but the stick on Velcro didn't work so I used the supersized quilt clips -useful for many things. Eventually I'll sew on the real Velcro. Works just fine, and I can always take the flannel off. Might even use it as the quilt backing :-).
Anyway, it was cheap, quick and easy. :-D I'll try to post pictures.

I am so sorry to hear this news. Here you were, safe from our clutches, and you voluntarily stepped into the dreaded quicksand of quilting from which no one ever emerges unscathed. It is now too late for you, you will join our ranks and discover the true importance of the right kind of thread for every occasion.

On the other hand, we love to see pictures!

Good luck on your wall hanging, I'm sure it will turn out wonderful! Great thinking making a temporary design wall at no cost!

I too recently found the need for a temporary design wall. In my case, I am trying to make a quilt for DH for Christmas without him knowing. I have the blocks done, but I really needed place to lay them out where he wouldnt see. In the storage corner of my sewing room there is a 6 ft tall folding table leaning against the wall. I taped a piece of flannel to it using masking tape. When I am not in there working, I turn the table around so the flannel is facing the wall. So far so good as he hasn't seen my work in progress yet Lets all cross our fingers and hope he doesnt need the table anytime soon!

Oh, Barb, honestly. You will scare the poor thing.

You are right about threads, though. Never, ever enough colors, weights, brands. Then there are all of US, who will help her spend her money all over the place...

I really enjoy quilting. I love to play with fabrics, colors and pictures. I recently discovered how much fun applique can be. As I love making pictures, landscape quilting can be challenging, but seeing the picture come to life is so rewarding.
