I don't have a sewing room, so I sew on my dining table. Hence no design wall as well. But I use 2 yards of felt draped on top of my china cabinet hold it down with books. It works great and I take it off when I am done auditioning with blocks.

Thank you for sharing this idea!  It solves one of my problems of trying to sew at my Mom's.

You can also use a cheap flannel backed vinyl table cloth the same way.  This way you can pick one up at a yard sale and it doesn't matter how ugly it is because the ugly goes against the wall and only the flannel shows!

Your blocks are great, Jereena and you have given me an idea. I have a flannel back tablecloth to use but no where to hang it-few walls in my house, and the walls that are there have large windows.  So I got the bright idea to hang it on my fireplace mantle and like you weight it down with something heavy.  Thanks for that idea.    Ginny

Jereena,

Neat idea for a design wall. I too am using my living room / dining room for my quilting. I find i just do not have enough space sometimes.

Also I love your Craftsy block of the month quilt. It looks great.

good job with your craftsy boms.  The more of these I see, the more I want to do one!  :)

Here's another idea for a portable (i.e. temporary) design wall. It's great for taking to retreats and classes!
