A Design Wall For The Rest Of Us

I'm sure many of you, like me, don't have room for a design wall.  My sewing room doubles as our guest room so I can't see making a design wall a permanent feature.  Instead, I have a large piece of flannel that I put on my bed.  I can lay the blocks on the flannel, where they "stick' so I can even fold it up when with the blocks in place if necessary. 

But the latest issue of American Patchwork & Quilting has a photo (page 12) of a new tool for quilters called The Vanishing Design Wall.  I think it could be a good alternative to the design bed.  It works similar to a movie screen.  Here is a short video demo.

This might be going on my Christmas list!  But I still have to figure out where to put it.


  1. This caught my eye too -- I like this idea and the decorative element of the shelf above.

  2. This is one of those things where you say to yourself: "Why didn't I think of that!" I'm going to put this on my Christmas wish list too! Thanks for the heads up.


I love hearing from you - thanks for taking the time to leave a message.
