When I posted about my latest design for a design wall using gray flannel and PVC pipe I got a message from Liza Lucy about something even better!
I now own one of the first pieces of this wonderful gray gridded design wall flannel.
It is everything a design wall should be.
It is being produced by Westminster fabrics.
The 2 inch grid is cream and the gray is an almost perfect photographic gray.
I was impressed with how perfectly straight it is printed – not an easy feat for this type of design.
I have mine pinned to my larger design wall right now. It can be taped to any blank wall.
You can use it to cover many surfaces.
It is 45 inches wide and can be purchased by the yard.
It will also be available in this special bag made from Kafe Fassett fabric that is convenient to take to workshops.
Even if you don’t work in a block format the grid will help you keep your work lined up and straight.
Because it is flannel fabric sticks to it without pins, unless it is very big. Then you may want to add a few pins to hold it in place.
As of now it is scheduled to be shipped to quilt shops April 7, 2013. You may want to ask your local quilt shop if they have ordered it.
