So, what is a design wall? Well, first of all, you know that a quilter needs his/her space, right? I have taken over all of what once was a dining room and a big room in the basement. Why? Because a quilter has a bunch of stuff. This stuff is not all fabric. It is sewing machines, cutting boards, big tables to hold quilts as they are being quilted, other big tables to provide space for making quilt sandwiches (not a food group), and for me, an area by the laundry room downstairs for my dyeing studio (yes, we call them all our studios).

|About a six inch gap!|
|Curved away from the wall!|
|Should be flat against the wall!|
So, down to the cutting board, remove the spray-basted batting and do what I should have done in the first place, measure and cut the board to the proper height. Well, I almost got it right; styrofoam is hard to cut with a kitchen knife so what you can't see is that there is a gap and the board is a bit wonky, but I am happy!
