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.

As we get into November, even Indian summer is becoming a distant memory. Now, with the last leaves falling off the trees, the weather turning sharply colder, and the holidays approaching, the emphasis seems to be on comfort. Indeed, this is the time when people retreat to the comfort of their homes, and enjoy meals and snacks that feature "comfort foods." It`s also the season when millions, once again, retrieve their comforters from quilt racks, and keep them on their beds, or their favorite easy chairs.
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.
Whether you create quilts for your family or for profit, you may be looking for a new idea to make your quilts stand out, and above, the rest. You can produce quality, unique quilt blocks with genuine Swarovski crystal rhinestones. Creating a quilt takes a lot of time, skill and care. Whether you are creating a wedding quilt, heirloom quilt or a quilt for a special child in your life, handmade quilts hold a very special place in the recipient`s heart. Most quilts become family heirlooms, passed down from generation to generation. Quality materials and workmanship is essential.
