I think I need a design wall...

I don't have wall space for a design wall in the studio. Technically, that isn't true as I could put it on the wall at the very top of the stairs. However, I have a couple of prints that I love and a shelf with beach items I have collected and I want them displayed. So, I now have a design floor. I don't think this is going to work for me so I need another plan. I am thinking about 3 narrow doors (like for a linen closet), piano hinges to attach them to each other and then covering one side with felt. It would have to lean against something but at least I could fold it up and shove it into the eave space when I wasn't using it. Does anyone have any ideas for something that would be "portable" and relatively inexpensive?

Here's my shower curtain quilt...that may become just a quilt

This is using up a huge chunk of my "Vienna Nights" stash. See the little print in the 9 patch? I still have a little over 3 yards of that, 1 yard of the small green print and then a bunch of 1/2 yard, 1/4 yard and fat quarters of coordinating prints. It's like a sickness. Every time I saw the fabric somewhere, I bought more. I have quite a bit in the yellow colorway and just saw more at a shop in Lancaster. I think I will use that in a "Four on the Floor" and whip up a quick quilt for my niece's graduation from medical assistant training.

Anyway, I managed to sew every day over the weekend and I feel like a new woman! I really needed some time to just get into the zone with Jenny and relax. This is an uncomplicated design that looks nice. I need uncomplicated for a while!
