|Pre-Batting Design Wall|
|Locked and Loaded|
He and I put the foam board up on my wall in the Sewing Room. I had an overabundance of pins so it as not a big deal to pin blocks to the wall. Recently, at a Modern Guild meeting at Red Stick Quilt Shop, I was helping hold the Show and Tell quilts when the Shop owner said Just put them up on the design wall. They will stay.
To my absolute and utter amazement it did! YES!
I had batting just sitting around in the room with my long arm. And oddly enough it was the absolute perfect size for the wall. Hmmmm wonder why that good fortune happened? There is that gift horse thing, I shrugged.

I had him put T Pins to anchor the batting to the top edge of the foam board. And I sprayed Elmer's adhesive on the foam board, smoothing the batting down over the wall. It stayed workable allowing us to reposition if we had any ripples in the batting.
About half way down, working in close quarters with two bassets, a small ladder and Frank, I obviously touched the recently sprayed foam board and glued the better part of my hair to the wall.

But you think that was the worst part of the experience? Not so.
The batting that was so perfect in size and so easily available? It belongs to the House quilt that is next up on the long arm. Oh well.
My hair mostly survived, there seems to be significant amounts of it still on the wall. And it hurt while Frank was pulling it off. I think if he was not laughing so hard it might have been easier.
Stash report is simple...... Skele-Biker and the Cotton Robin finish. More this week if I can get a couple on the long arm and count some finishes!
