New Design Wall

Here is my finished "kid's quilt" for the 40 quilt service project. I will be mailing this out to Amy some time this week. Keeping the pattern simple helped me to complete the quilt and enjoy the project. I love the cheerful brights, they are so uplifting.

The little quilt is attached to my new portable design wall. Assembling it by myself was a little like making a bed with an old fashioned sheet that has shrunk slightly. Get one side on, the other pops off etc. Still, I finally got it together and I'm sure it will go more easily next time. The little poles reminded me of my old camping days when we used to put together our North Face tents. I remember when these light weight poles were quite the innovation for backpackers. Yes, this was long ago, and the memories are fun but they do make me feel older than dirt. My days of willingly sleeping outdoors on the ground are long gone.

Back to the design wall, I'm still deciding, but I think I like it. I love the portability aspect, and expect to get a lot of use out of it.

someone in my class at Art Quilt Tahoe had one of those. Very cool and I like that it can be moved around.

Where did you find that? Sometimes I need something bigger than my closet doors to work out the placement of blocks and that might be just the answer.

Well duh! Next time I should notice the link before I ask the dumb question. Thanks for such a fast answer!
