New Design wall is up.

Broccoli is holding down the Barn quilt for me, so I don't lose it again (it's a long story).

I am posting a picture here of my new design wall, made from Quilter's Dream Cotton Batting, that I hand dyed using a mix of leftover dyes plus all the black that I had on hand. It turned out looking more of a federal gray-blue, but will do for now. The things hanging on it are for illustration purposes only right now. I just grabbed what was handy to see how well things stick to it. Even the green lame' fabric stays fairly well.

Where did you get those blocks Bee? I can't imagine you putting those together!

I like the color of your design wall. Not as harsh as the white flannel. Glad to hear your take on Hoot; been wanting to see it since I heard that it had Burrowing Owls and Jimmy Buffet; I am a birdwatcher and somewhat of a Parrot Head [guess those things kind of go together.] It's showing in our new movie theatre complex but with our current family concerns haven't been able to manage it.

That color is great! I'd never thought of using a color before, although I suppose some would call it a neutral.

I'd never thought of dying batting. I will keep that idea in the back of my head for future use. It would be interesting to do one of those quilt-as-you-go flannel things with the raggy edges and use the batting to show through in place of layers and layers of flannel.
