Jacy:
I think these birthday blocks became a ufo because I didn't like the way I was setting them together. I got a new idea and I liked it much better and it didn't take too long to make it a completed top, 73x88".

I love it Jacy. The setting showcases each block quite nicely.

 

I working my way back slowly.

Star, , how did you make your design wall? I'm working on one now and want others opinions on how they like theirs.

Michelle. I simply put corkboard on the wall and a Fons and Porter flannel design wall over it. Plain flannel will do just as well, or a flannel backed table cloth, I just happened to get the F&P with a 50% off coupon. With the soft cork backing, I can easily pin things to the design wall when needed. I found a large roll of cork at a thrift store and used double stick mounting tape. I put hooks at the top to attach the flannel to.

I am thinking of making a tri-fold wall that I can put up as needed as I need a second design wall but no more wall space.

 


In the beautiful Pacific Northwest!

Like Judy said, plain flannel works great. I just bought six yards, cut in half and sewed together, ironed the seam, nailed to the wall. Wish I would have known about the cork board. I see a revision coming once this quilt is off. Also, it's in my bedroom. I only had to move one small bookcase and wall hanging. I have a one level house, so not too bad.

That is sort of what I was thinking to do. I have the flannel with a plastic backing. Was thinking to make a pocket in the top and add a thin curtain rod that I can roll it up on? Still envisioning it. Husband is going to put some type of holder on the wall near ceiling so I can hang it but roll when going to retreats. I saw one that just hangs over a door with over the door hooks, like those that hold a wreath.

Michelle, that sounds like a great idea to be able to roll the design wall up and out of the way.

Here is a picture of my April / May / ??? UFO in progress

Star, that is pretty. It looks like you have a lot done already. It looks like you'll be busy making all the sashing pieces, I like the friendship star that form from the sashing/cornerstones. Looking forward to seeing progress soon.
