My design wall looks like this today. Pretty and green. And neat and tidy. I am trying to decide if I want to put back my design wall how it was before (just flannel tacked directly to the wall) or do something a bit more durable this time. And something that might protect my new paint job. I haven`t decided yet, but I do suspect that speed will win out and the old sheet will go back up before long. And I doubt the tidiness will last past the first stitch.
In the meantime, I did pull out a couple of projects to finish. There was a moment of panic as I found the fabric from one, but neither of the quilts. Figured out where I`d stashed the quilts, then I had to to go hunting for the remaining fabric for the other quilt. But, all bits and pieces are found now, and a plan is in place. 2 quilts that need borders, then on to a new project.
First, I`m determined to finish the borders for swoon. I completed the pieced border at my last retreat, now I just have to put them all together - all 7 borders.
And then, on to this project. I`ve decided it needs a border because it`s too small right now for my space bed. A 6" border all around should fix that problem. At least I hope it will, because I think that even that little is going to stretch the remaining fabric to its limits.
