My sewing room is upstairs and my walls are slanted. I have no space for a design wall. I saw on a blog I read alot (Quilting Library) that she had a link to building a portable design wall...Sew Many Ways.
I had printed this out last week and given it to my husband and told him I wanted him to build me one of these. He said ok...I figured I wouldn't see it for a while but I was wrong. When I arrived home yesterday, he had made me one of these portable design walls out of the PVC pipe. He did a great job but I told him it was too small and asked him if he could make it bigger. He said he thought it might be too small when he made it and was prepared for me. He bought extra supplies, took it apart and put it back together within 10 minutes and I now have a five foot portable design frame. Now, I get to put some batting on it and I will have my design wall. He said he felt so guilty about my quilt, he made this to make up with me....It worked---- but I'm still going to hang that quilt in the living room! I'll take a picture and show you when I have put the batting around it...Go check out these two blogs, lots of info...
