Quilt Display / August 28, 2017 / Halette
A design wall is a place on a wall where we can hang units of a quilt. This permits the quilter to stand back and scrutinize the design before sewing the quilt. Quilters often dangle batting or plain white flannel on their design walls because quilt blocks tend to stick to it effortlessly without pinning. A design wall is one of the tools that are of immense advantage to any quilt-maker.
The online suppliers give you all details of the quilt display racks such as the dimensions of the rack including the height the width and the depth. You can even personalize the wood that you want used. All the tools that you will need are also mentioned such as a table saw router drill and clamps and you can mount it easily with the help of the instructions drawings and materials lists and so on.
It allows her to stand back and assess the flow of colors the combination effect and the effects of various patterns in a current quilt making project. In the initial stages a design wall helps us to cut out and accumulate block or appliqué pieces to assess whether the selection and combination of colors are working. As work progresses we can also mount each new section as and when we finish so that we can assess the work and make necessary changes. You can make various color adjustments in the borders based on what you perceive about the middle of the quilt while it hangs on the design wall.
