I know where it's going!

If I'm going to keep making bigger quilts, I'm going to have to find a better place to lay the blocks out for progress pictures. What I need is a big design wall, but there's no place in this house to put a permanent one. We've got all of these pesky doors and windows and pieces of furniture. I think I can eventually manage a portable one in the sewing room, but it'll block the door when I'm using it...

Before I do something stupid, someone please agree with me that it would be wrong to put a design wall in the teenage girl's room and just plain stupid to put one in the room shared by my boys!

I'm still loving this scrappy Irish Chain, which is going together a lot faster than I thought it would.



I think I mentioned that this was supposed to be my quilt until the first time I laid out the blocks. Then I got a strong feeling that it wasn't mine...but I wasn't sure quite whose it was. After talking to a friend two days ago, I know exactly where this quilt is going, and now I can't wait to get it done.

To see more projects, head over to Design Wall Monday at Patchwork Times.

Like your scrappy Irish Chain, beautiful colors. I don't have a place for a large design wall so I bought Fons and Porter's, it hangs on hooks (I used nails) and can easily be taken down. It just isn't large enough but works better than laying everying out on the bed.

Your scrappy quilt is wonderful - glad you found just the right home for it! Hopefully now that quilt home inspiration has hit, design wall location inspiration will arrive next.

Oh my goodness my scrappy Irish Chain looks similar to yours. It is king size waiting to be quilted. I just need a large space to pin to prepare for sandwiching. Yours is coming out quite well. I just love all the bright colors.

A minha parede é um colchão velho(mas em bom estado)desses antigo com muita madeira e pouca espuma,então o quebra-coluna foi trocado e eu mais que depressa tive a ideia:fiz dois furos nas extremidades e parafusei na altura dos meus braços estendidos para cima,e deu certo.É de solteiro e ficou entre duas janelas no quarto de costura.Minha amiga fez uma para ela com espuma de 2cm e colocou na cortina de varão,abre e fecha quando precisa.A espuma foi pregada no tecido da cortina,que é lona de caminhão.Estas duas ideia arrancam boas gargalhadas dos amigos,eu grito quando alguém encosta.kákáká.HUM grande beijo e improvise.

Have a good idea for design wall: I don't really have the wallspace either, but want to make or find one that will roll up like a video screen, only instead of the vinyl, use flannel. I think I have seen some not too long ago. I want to hang this above my two wallclosets in my sewing room, thus only having to pull the screen up in order to have a clean room again.
