This is another one of those now, why didnt I think of that myself moments! I just happen to have an empty wall in my cutting room, previously the smallest bedroom in the house. This is definitely going on my to do list, which is getting longer by the minute.

This is such a great tutorial for something so necessary for a quilter! I have a design wall but I don't care for it. It's one that's flannel with a grid and has grommets at the top for hanging. The problem is that I have it hanging down from a book shelf because I lack wall space. The fabric pieces always have to be pinned in order for them to stick. If I do get some wall space in the future, I'll be sure to look this project up again! What are some unique design wall situations you might have?

What an awesome idea. This project is going to be a life-saver.
