Over the Christmas holiday, I finished more flowers for my rainbow flower quilt, which I originally posted about here.
These are fun to hand piece with Inklingo. I have no real plan for this quilt, aside from using up as much of my scrap stash as possible. When I pulled these out for the picture, I was surprised at how many I had already finished. It’s amazing what you can accomplish with fun little on-the-go projects like this.
So you can also see from this picture my rather sad excuse for a design wall. I’m trying to figure out whether to buy or make one, as I find myself wishing for one more often lately. What do you use for a design wall? Are you a flannel tablecloth pinned to the wall kind of quilter, or have you invested money in one of the spiffy ones that rolls up and down, serves as a shelf for knicknacks, and also organizes your recipe collection?
I’m looking seriously into these: Design-a-way, Cheryl Ann’s portable design wall, or doing it myself with this great tutorial from Elizabeth Hartman. Any thoughts? Have you ever used any of these, or made your own? Reviews are frustratingly hard to come by, so I would appreciate all input!!
