Do you use a design wall? What kind and size?
I have the Fons and Porter design wall - 60"x72"
I do use it for playing around with block arrangements, and just recently I used it for spray basting my quilt sandwich. No more sore knees.
A bigger design wall might be handy, but this one fits my one available wall nicely.

I have a very make shift design wall and I use it all the time. I have an area on my dining room wall where my son and hubby took out a window between rooms and put the drywall up. I started taping and plastering it but did not get it quite done. I hung some batting over it and use that as my design wall, but lately I have been trying to figure out a DW that can be taken down and put away when we have something going on. I've come up with a couple of ideas but have not quite communicated them to my hubby.
Life is like a quilt...bits & pieces, joy & sorrow, stitched with love
BTW, Hi and welcome to QCA
I made mine. I went to AC Moore craft store and bought a piece of foam core. You find it in the framing department. I covered it with a vinyl tablecloth. Wrong side out. It is not real big but big enough to get an idea of how you want things.
welcome to qca ! I do like using a design wall I have the fons & porter one that hangs on the wall I like it.
I think I bought it through connecting threads
I made mine also. I don't have any available walls becasue there are so many windows. I bought two pieces of foam core which are 40"high x 30" wide and covered them individually with flannel fabric. I can lean them against a cabinet when I'm working on something small or stand them side by side or one on top of the other for larger quilts. They are easy to store behind a desk or cabinet and pulled out when needed. It works for me.
