New Design Wall.

My studio is almost complete. You can see the design wall leaning up against the wall, ready to be mounted on the wall.

Sewing/longarm stations.
DH helped me to get my new design wall in place. I used some directions that I found here. I did modify the size, making it a little be narrower to fit the space. I also used batting instead of a flannel sheet. I also ended up taping the batting to the back instead of stapling. I did tape the two boards together in the front- next time I probably would not do this, as you can see the tape in the front.
Up on the wall.
Finished!
With quilt on the wall.
I like the way it turned out. It ended up 96" tall and 72" wide. I only did it 72" wide, as the longarm would have sat in front if it was any wider. It should fit most quilts that I want to make with room to spare at the top for something else. The Quilt pictured will be the 2019-2020 opportunity quilt for Sunshine Quilt Guild. It will be the first to be quilted once the longarm is running. Still have a few things to hook up to get it running.

Have a great week!

  1. You will "sew" enjoy having that space to design your projects on. It makes a world of difference. If you have a ceiling fan...be cautious of FUs (flying units). Sandi
