It’s Hope Yoder with an easy tutorial on how I made a design wall for my cozy quilting space. First, what is a design wall? I would liken it to an old-fashioned felt board. Remember the felt boards used in school or the small quiet games made of felt? A quilting design wall is usually made of cotton batting and can be on a loose portable structure or a fixed structure. How to use it. As you cut your blocks of cotton quilting fabrics you can finger press (or pin) them to the design wall and the fabric clings to the cotton batting. This allows you to rearrange your blocks, take a step back and check out your masterpiece. Arrange, step back, look and repeat.

If you search for quilting design walls you can find a wide variety of directions on how to make them. Here, I’ll share with you how I made mine using supplies I purchased from our local Lowes store. I had plenty of wide cotton batting in my sewing room and the extra supplies I purchased at Lowes came to under $35.00.





Some observations about my design wall:

Until next time, happy crafting! Hope Yoder.
