Sew New to Me VQB Blocks and a New Design Wall

SNTM Feb Blocks

In the last week I received 3 more blocks! I’m getting really excited about this quilt. I need to get on it and finish the inner blocks I’ll be making – seen here if you don’t remember.

These blocks were sent to me by Lisa of Sophia Aster, Heather of A La Mode Fabric, and Lisa. And do you see how I have them displayed? It’s my new design wall! Ever since I saw Ashley of Film in the Fridge’s GIANT design wall, I’ve really really really wanted one. Ok, so mine is 1/6th the size. But it really works in the space and I think it will be a great place to display ideas while I hash them out.

It was really easy to make. I went to Ikea and bought the largest black frame they sold. I wrapped the plexiglass and backing in a piece of craft sized batting and hung the frame. So easy!

    Very, very nice! I just put one up this weekend just using a picnic tablecloth attached to the wall. The backside is fuzzy so it works really well – not so nice looking as yours though :)

    Great idea with the Ikea frame…I’m hoping to do this too as our living room floor is not the safest design spot.

    Love those blocks! That’s going to be a gorgeous quilt.

    Great blocks!!!
    And the design wall is to die for! I’ll have to remember that next time I go to Ikea. FABULOUS idea!
