Make an Easy Design Wall

I've been chatting to students in a couple of recent classes about how a Design Wall is an important tool for quilters. Placing your quilt blocks or units on a wall so you can see them vertically helps you really see what's going on with your project.

It will be easier to spot any errors in your patchwork. You know those ones that you find AFTER the quilt is finished!

You can arrange the blocks and photograph the layout. And then try other arrangements and photograph the results to see if one is more pleasing than the others.

I am very lucky to have a large floor to ceiling design wall that is 12 feet wide. But you don't have to have a space this large.

Check out the information in this helpful blog post from The Quilting Company and make it a priority to make yourself a Design Wall.
