In such instances, our only recourse may be to grab our beloved, dependable quilts, and wrap ourselves in their soft, soothing warmth. Truly, it`s no wonder that quilts are referred to as comforters, or, even more to the point, security blankets. Actually, they have been calming furrowed brows for centuries, during a long, colorful history that is steeped in tradition. Because they have, customarily, been given as gifts, and made from pieces of worn-out clothing, linens, and other materials of significance to the recipient, the sentimental value of quilts increases many times over.
Now we are ready to hang our design wall and start using it. We just need to place bits of fabrics, blocks or quilt tops on the design wall, bring into line the corners and boundaries with the stitching lines. The consistency of the flannel will cause the fabric to fasten. There are times when we can use straight pins to break through the batting. This proves helpful in keeping all the sections in place.
Often the quilt is a gift from a good friend and they want to display it on a quality rack. Some online retailers stock dozens of models. You will be able to find something that not only meets your budget but also matches your current furniture. If you have a lot of wooden things in your living room already an oak quilt rack might be a good match. Some other people might prefer something metallic. Often steel or brass racks will be available.
A further piece of good news is that a design wall is not difficult to make at all. However we must take certain aspects into consideration. The larger the area of the wall, the bigger the design wall can be. It is best to have the design wall on a wall that you can stand at least eight feet away from. The best way to analyze a design is to review it standing away from it. The next decision to be taken is whether the design wall needs to be portable or fixed. If portable, then it needs to be small in size.
