Build a quilt design wall on the cheap!

With all of our heads buzzing with ideas and inspiration from the quilt room home tour this past weekend, here's a great tutorial for making a design wall for your quilt room from the blog of ChristaQuilts.com:

I like that they used insulating foam board (instead of the low density fiberboard I used) because it's probably cheaper and definitely lighter to manage and hang on your walls, although I used off-white flannel fabric and not sheets and wrapped each board individually.

You're welcome! Like I said, I just used cream colored flannel fabric for my wall - I serged the edges and then ran them through the washer and dryer, then wrapped each board individually with fabric - I'd think flannel fabric would be cheaper than a flannel sheet and certainly straighter.

I covered mine with flannel backed plastic tablecloths that you purchase by the yard at JoAnn's. Sticks way better than plain flannel.
