Topic: In the studio
I've got a great new addition in the quilt studio! I first found this item in the Nancy's Notions catalog but, while at the Sewing and Stitchery Expo the end of February, I found it at a better price.
In my studio, I have no room for a design wall without moving out half the furniture. But this portable wall comes in several sizes. I got the 72x72 size.
Not only is it free-standing, it is light and portable. It breaks down in about 5 minutes and all fits in its own little duffel bag that is about 6 inches across and 18 inches long.
You can see the wall here from the front.
It has a flannel cover, four outer braces, two cross-braces, and two legs with their own braces.
Here is a view from the other side.
In this side view you can see the legs and braces.
In this back view, you can see the cross-braces that hold it taut.
Because it breaks down so easily, I can leave it up while at home but take it along to set up at quilt workshop days and on retreat.
Sure easier than trying to arrange blocks on the bed or floor.
I set it just outside the quilt room on an unused basement wall.
