It allows her to stand back and assess the flow of colors, the combination effect and the effects of various patterns in a current quilt making project. In the initial stages, a design wall helps us to cut out and accumulate block or appliqué pieces to assess whether the selection and combination of colors are working. As work progresses, we can also mount each new section as and when we finish so that we can assess the work and make necessary changes. You can make various color adjustments in the borders based on what you perceive about the middle of the quilt while it hangs on the design wall.
In olden days, pioneer families that braved the hostile, westward trails, in hopes of finding new land, and new lives, had to stock up on supplies, as they prepared for their journeys. They needed provisions that would not only assist with their safe passage, but would help them to survive, when they reached their destinations. Along with several months` worth of food, ammunition, and clothing, it was recommended that every family pack enough bedding to last for a few years, with two or three quilts or blankets per person.
Well, it is quite hard to attract a crowd if you`ll just place your quilts on the floor - visitors wouldn`t be able to see your quilt collection from a distance. And it wouldn`t really help if you`ll just tape them on the wall - it might come off as very unprofessional and messy. That`s why portable quilt racks are highly recommended to use in trade show exhibits because they keep everything in orderly fashion and easy for both the exhibitor and potential customers.
Of course, things being what they are, it doesn`t take harsh weather to cause us to feel the need for some consolation. No-o! These days, the perils of routine living, alone, can put us on edge. Then, throw in the state of the world, and the economy, and it`s enough to send anyone running for cover. Although we often seek out the people who normally support us during trying times, in many cases, they`re just as overwhelmed as we are.
A further piece of good news is that a design wall is not difficult to make at all. However we must take certain aspects into consideration. The larger the area of the wall, the bigger the design wall can be. It is best to have the design wall on a wall that you can stand at least eight feet away from. The best way to analyze a design is to review it standing away from it. The next decision to be taken is whether the design wall needs to be portable or fixed. If portable, then it needs to be small in size.
