I saw this book and it really hits all my hot spots....kaleidoscope, mandalas, compass rose. And then I came across Quilter in the Closet where she had made a beautiful blue one-block wonder quilt. And now she is starting a One-Block Wonder QAL.
But the design board had been on the planning table for some time now. With both Texter and I feeling less like doing much of anything last week, we spent a few minutes and put together my design board. The boards I had saved out of the box my recliner had come in. There were 3 nice, heavy boards. So I took 2 and duct taped them together. Then covered them with batting and then white flannel.
I had thought about placing it on the floor so it is vertical rather than horizontal. However, we really didn't secure the join very well and it bends if I set it that way. To fix it would mean, un-duct-taping the whole thing and putting a brace on the back. Or just putting a brace across the back. And I am not up to snuff enough to tackle that yet.
There is still 1 more panel I can cover and use for a smaller design board or an inspiration board. However, we do use it for puzzles that are too big for the card table. So I may hold off on using that board for a bit until I see how much we use it for puzzles. With winter coming I have to do something so that Texter will be occupied while I stitch and knit.
