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.

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.

Hi Kim~

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.
