This will probably be the best option if you are looking to preserve your quilt. But this simply means you will not be able to enjoy it all. What`s the point of having a quilt if it`s going to be stashed away where it cannot be seen or used? This is why many quilt owners eventually by a rack to store it on. With an official piece of furniture to place it own, family members will be more respectful. And just as important, you will be able to display it in whatever room you please.
For making the design wall, we need to stick the three layers of fabric that go into the making of the quit, batting and fastening them together with the help of safety pins. Using a walking foot, we need to stitch on the vertical, marked line down the center of the fabric and continue sewing vertical lines out to the rim of the fabric. Once that is done, we need to stitch the horizontal lines in the same manner. Once the entire vertical as well as the horizontal lines is sewn, we need to straighten and square the edges.
When you want to use unique quilt blocks on your project, consider using Swarovski crystal rhinestone designs. Be the first person in your quilting circle to use these unique quilting embellishments. They add immediate and easy value to your quilt and are available in many different designs. You can also have custom quilting blocks made with crystal rhinestones that will compliment your quilt`s design or theme.
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.
Why should you use Swarovski crystal rhinestones? Because they will last the lifetime of each quilt that you create. Although there are less expensive rhinestones available, they may not continue to adhere to your quilting blocks when washed. A quilt is an heirloom. If your rhinestones fall off, it will lose some of it`s value. Genuine crystal rhinestones will add an amazing touch of sparkle to your next quilting project. All you need is your own household iron.
