I made a thing to make other things – and it’s absolutely HUGE!
What is this Huge, wonderful thing that will assist in other things?
Why a Design Wall for Quilting of course!
So, you may ask – what’s so special about this wall? WELL. deep subject
Here she is! She measures – 83″ x 93″ Bonus – it’s double sided! That’s right folks, I can work on 2 projects at once if I so choose. This gives me a happy.
Actually, it’s a pretty easy answer – I can take it apart and store it with very little space!
It’s made from one of my favorite materials to work with – PVC Pipe. That’s right, I built a frame from PVC pipe. 3/4″ to be exact. I also purchased 3 3 yard cuts of 72″ wide felt from JoAnn’s and seamed them together along the length. The third cut I only used roughly 21″ wide, but the full 3 yards length. After that was stitched up, I simply closed the top with a seam. Voila! Double sided Design Wall
Just so you can see, here is my frame being built in the sun room –
I was going to end the post here, but I’ll admit my bonehead move – you see, I built this in the sun-room, and when I finally finished wrestling the felt and pipes getting the cover on, I was ecstatic!
Then I then realized I couldn’t get it through the door to my office/studio!
So, I had to wait for the man to get home………. and then we moved her into the office/studio. Now it’s shiny and happy waiting to be used.
And of course I did have to try it…. I used some of my HST’s for my table runner…
YUP! IT STICKS!
Once I square up my HST’s, I’ll stick them on the wall and show you….
So, what do you think?
