Hi there, good Thursday evening to all. I have a new design board, or bulletin board for my sewing area. I have to confess that I have been pinning blocks directly into the wall for the last four years... ouch it has been hard on the fingers. So this Sunday I purchased a 4 x 8 foot, 2" foam insulation board and covered it with batting... and it was so nice to just "stick" blocks to the board. However, the one 4 x 8 board was just not wide enough, so Monday I added another one, covered with batting and now I can very happily report that my fingers are on the mend. The feature I really like and didn't realize I was missing is that you really can use it as a design area, and change blocks around very quickly... much quicker that all that pinning and pushing.
I also have finally decided and made progress on the border for the cow quilt. Should have a looksy ready maybe early next week. (We are out of town Saturday, dang it... but I'll get my fill of stitching in on Sunday.) I did go with lots of pink, following Mary Lou's suggestion, and let me tell you we are talkin' PINK!
Here's to the new design board!
You can see the two different boards, as I had two different types of batting stashed away... I'll probably never get around to changing them to match. And, I am just leaning them against the wall, at least for now.
Looking forward to that weekend!
