I've wanted a design wall for a very long time, but we just don't have room for one in our home. So, when I came across this post, I knew that I wanted to make some of these smaller design boards. They are by no means a replacement for a design wall, but they will enable me to play around with quilt block designs without the pieces sliding around.
Following the instructions in the above mentioned post, I set to work ...
I started out with 2 inexpensive foam boards that were 20 x 30 inches each ...
and cut them into 12 x 12 inch squares (I saved the 'leftovers' for future projects)
I cut out pieces of cotton quilting batting (from scraps I had on hand) and glued them to each board (around all four sides) using a hot glue gun ...
Here are all 4 boards, trimmed and stacked waiting for the next step
I stitched up the edging and glued it on ... I was all set to complete all 4 of them yesterday, but let's just say that yesterday didn't go the way we had planned so, I still have 3 more to edge.
Take a closer look at the fabric I'm using for the edging ... it is perfect for the project and it came from my fabric stash!
I am excited about these design boards and am planning a quilting project so I can put them to use!
