I dream of a quilt studio in the woods overlooking a lake or stream, watching birds and wildlife outside my window as music plays quietly over an expensive Bose stereo system. I can stitch away the day with no other responsibilities except to be a wonderful wife and grandma. That’s not likely to happen any time soon, so I’m
content begrudgingly working in my unfinished basement with the beautiful yellow cement block walls. But a design wall would make all the difference, so the Woodworker, being the fabulous husband that he is, helped make THAT dream a reality for Mother’s Day.
If you’ve wondered how to create your own design wall, here’s how we did it, in pictures.
If you leave a comment below, please tell the Woodworker how appreciative of him you are. You can find him during the day at Mosey’s Woodworks in beautiful downtown Flushing.
The quilting is now complete, and all that remains to be done is:
- A hanging sleeve for the back
- Sewing the binding on by machine
- Hand stitching the binding closed with mitered corners
- Washing the quilt (gasp)
- Sewing on the label (still unsure as to who will be making the label)

Not much quilting was completed over the weekend, as it was beautiful here! We rode the bike to Lake Huron and stared at the water. Gorgeous!
