    I have the fons and porter piece so just need to get the foam board

    My question is does it stand up to using pins - or just stick pins?

    Love this idea because it will be easier to use than just putting the fons and porter on the wall

    I have this, too. It's just dangling from the wall. The added board is an excellent idea.

    I stuck the Fons & Porter design wall up on my wall with plastic Command hooks. I love this thing.

    This is a great idea and you will get a lot of use out of it. I made one recently using pvc and flannel. Whatever you use, you won't be able to imagine life, (the quilting part, that is), without it.

    Another great use for Styrofoam! Have one with batting for a design wall, and a thicker piece on my quilting table to get the quilt UP at sewing machine level -- and easy to move out of the way when it's just piecing time. Had no idea there was a real "Design Wall" with a grid on it, how cool is that?!

    Thanks

    I love your idea and I find it amazing that when I was designing my sewing room I didn't think to leave space for a design wall on my wall. I got a 120 " decorative rod and have it hung on a shorter than that wall in front of the closet. I can extent it to the full length when needed. I got cafe clips to hang my Fons & Porter design wall on it and will be getting another one to really be able to use the full space. I like that I can pull it back to get into the closet if I need to do that.

    I cut a piece of batting off my roll of warm & white, put some plastic grommets on it and hung it on the removable 3M Command hooks that I already had. It was a last minute decision so I used things I had available in the house. I've already had to move it once, and it was easy to do.
