A week or two ago, Kate kindly pointed me in the direction of a mini design board tutorial. If you’ve ever been to my house, you know I don’t have any bare walls remotely large enough for a design wall of any size so I was quite excited about this tutorial. I was thinking about going to Farmer’s Wife class with 6 or 7 blocks cut out and realized that the version with foam core would not work for me so I built my block keepers with 12 x 12 scrapbook paper and a thick fabric with nap (flannel would work beautifully, I think I used PVU). I’d been having trouble with my previous system (just scrap batting stuffed in a notebook) and these worked a treat. If you want to be extra cautious, try binder clips around the outside during transit. Thanks for the tip Kate!
