Hi everyone...I have been so busy with work, cleaning and setting up my sewing space that I haven't done any posting or sewing. My DH has to do a few for more things in my new space before my fabric can go in and then I can finish it....I have the book Creating Your Perfect Quilting Space and love all the ideas in it. My space is small so I need to find a few pieces of furniture that can double as pressing and cutting spaces instead of my ironing board that takes up so much room and has no storage under it and my cutting table is the one you get at JoAnns with long drop leafs so I would like something else with storage under it...I do have a question for everyone...What do you use for a design wall....I have one wall that will work but need to know what I will use to put the blocks on. Any ideas?

We are still getting snow and it sure seems like spring will never come...I am dreaming of my gardens, the sparkling blue water of Lake Michigamme and being able to be outside....Hope all is well with you and I promise to get some quilting done soon to share with everyone...

My design wall is made from two sheets of 8x4 styrofoam insulation covered with diaper flannelette. Some people have covering that has a grid on it, which would be nice. I am VERY happy with mine and would be lost without it.

I have three pieces of pink insulation board covered with a layer of quilt batting and then a layer of white flannel over that. They are butted together along one wall. I LOVE them.

So where are you in the Yoop? You mentioned 40 inches of snow. Marquette area? We had heard there was upwards of 36 inches of snow over Easter in that area.

Great question, Toni. Like you I have "the" perfect wall in my tiny room but wasn't sure what to use. You've gotten some great ideas. I can't wait to see pictures of your "new" space!
