For the longest time I've been trying to come up with a large scale design wall for my Quilt Studio. Nothing seems to be the perfect option. Today I had a burst of cre8tivity and within an hour my mini Design Wall was mounted.
I knew I had a few sheets of foam core board in the basement from back when I was matting and framing pictures. Sigh...I really need to get back to that hobby too. I have lots of cool pictures that I could mat and frame to hang around the house. Anyway, I was wondering why I couldn't just hang a piece of foam core with Command Strips the same way I hung my thread holders. I knew I was out of spray adhesive but I did have a chunk of cheap white flannel left over. I ran out to Michael's and bought a can of spray adhesive and a package of the Command Picture Hanging Strips.
Next it was a stop at Office Max to pick up a few packages of photo sleeves and a binder. When did binders become so expensive?? I mean it's JUST a binder. Just a standard three ring binder. My last stop was Target to pick up some miscellaneous itsms and a roll of masking tape.
I came home, I sprayed my foam core board with adhesive, smoothed out my white flannel, wrapped it around back and masking taped the raw edges. I put on a few of the picture hanging strips and stuck it to my closet door. Now it can be taken down if I wish. I have a few more pieces of foam core board, so I may make a few additional ones.
The rest of the afternoon I spent making 6" blocks.
Here's my cute little design wall:
